Do We Really Understand Inflation?

I recorded a great podcast with Peter McCormack when I was in NYC last month. This one was a little different for me and I think you’ll enjoy it. Peter runs the What Bitcoin Did Podcast, one of the few Bitcoin podcasts I listen to regularly. Peter is a Bitcoin maximalist, but embraces his maximalism without a lot of the brash arrogance that you sometimes find in other Bitcoiners. He’s a great guy and very thoughtful. I loved talking to him.

We covered a whole range of topics. I think you’ll like this one.
