AMA with Sylvester Stallone

AMA with Sylvester Stallone

He’s a legend of pop culture. He’s the only living actor to have topped the box office in the last 6 decades. He’s one of the most inspirational people of our time.  Countless people have run up the Philadelphia courthouse steps and raised their hands in the air triumphantly, mimicking his iconic character.  If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m talking about the one-and-only Sylvester Stallone.

Joel recently had the privilege of interviewing Sly for an ask-me-anything in the PlanetSLY discord channel, a social channel dedicated to his upcoming NFT launch. Our members had great questions that provided insight into Sly’s mindset and where he finds his inspiration.

Coming from Puerto Rico, Mexico and on-set with Sylvester Stallone in Oklahoma, this is the “yo Adrian!” episode #607 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Is Avalanche the World’s Fastest Smart Contract Blockchain? Jay Kurahashi-Sofue, VP Marketing, Ava Labs

Continuing our series of exploring other blockchains, we stick to the beginning of the alphabet to check out one of the newer players on the scene, Avalanche. And while still relatively new, the AVAX token has broken into the Coin Gecko Top 10. 

In episode 593, we visit with Jay Kurahashi-Sofue, VP of Marketing at Ava Labs, to challenge their assertion that Avalanche is the world’s fastest smart-contract blockchain.  Don’t worry, we aren’t confrontational, but we do have questions.

Questioning everything is what we do, because we really just don’t know.  And it’s how we learn.

So learn along with us as we continue with an avalanche of content for your ears on episode #593 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Art on the Blockchain Revisited with Vesa

Art on the Blockchain Revisited with Vesa

As we rapidly approach the fifth anniversary of this podcast, it’s amazing to us how quickly time has flown by. We thought it was a great time to invite Vesa back to see what’s changed and what has stayed the same. We get into some deep stuff about the nature of art and how NFTs are changing the game.

One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small. Take them both and you end up just where you started. There, I’ve created derivative art with my words. And now we are going to create more art words with our friend Vesa on this artsy-fartsy episode #588 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

LISTENER FEEDBACK

WES  —  G’day fellas. Ozzy Wes here in Western Australia, once a free and wonderful place. Now full of clowns run by a communist clown who has locked every one out, and locked us in. “McClown” as he is referred to here by those in the know has created a dystopian paradise full of complacent non-thinkers. Writing in as your in your last pod with Eryka you suggested it’s only ever the whingers who email, so I hear your call and am responding with 2 thumbs up ! You guys are in my “wait for release” top podcast list and an extra thumb up for all the inappropriate comments.  I’ve now got Puerto Rico on my research list of places to escape to. Keep up the great work – much appreciated. Wes ….. yiiiiiiieeeeeeeww

A Fireside Chat with Eryka Gemma

A Fireside Chat with Eryka Gemma

A Fireside Chat with Eryka Gemma

Remember a couple of episodes back when Eryka Gemma moderated a fireside chat with us at The North American Bitcoin Conference, and we said words about things? Well, we just couldn’t stay away and we’ve invited her to this show to say more words. In episode 585, we discuss Eryka Gemma’s journey down the crypto rabbit hole, how she founded the first Bitcoin Center in Miami in 2018, and the state of the world, highlighted by why crypto is just so darned important to our freedom.  

Caution, the show you are about to hear features opinions, delivered by opinionated people. Those opinions may not be popular.  Whatever. If you are offended by other peoples’ opinions, you should probably just blindfold yourself so as to not see anything and tape headphones playing Kenny G on replay over your ears so you won’t hear anything you might disagree with. Otherwise, we’re glad you are here for episode #585 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
