We had serious technical challenges to overcome this time, but overcome we did. Host Paul Carr is joined by panelists Marsha Barnhart and Buck Field and special guest Hiroja Shibe of the Musings of a Shibe podcast. The subject is the emerging peer-to-peer economy enabled by crytptocurrencies like DogeCoin. We talk about the history of cryptocurrency, the cutlure around it, and risks and concerns, such as volatility, fraud, and co-opting by the financial elite.
