This episode is different than our usual weekly dialogue; it's a monologue that’s intended to explain the importance and significance of Bitcoin (starting from ground zero) in just under 45 minutes.
The intention behind this is to create a stand alone resource that can assist in introducing Bitcoin to a newcomer, but if you’ve been exploring Bitcoin for some time, hopefully I will cover angles you may haven’t heard before and/or give you food for thought on how to explain this protocol to others.
