Guy Swann is a friend, bitcoiner, and creator and host of 'Bitcoin Audible', a podcast where he reads the top articles in the bitcoin space, and provides extensive and valuable commentary on them.
I've known Guy since I've been in the bitcoin space, but we hadn't spoken in a while, so we booked a podcast to have a catch up and discuss some things happening in bitcoin that I was hoping to get his opinion on.
As it turns out, the day of our recording was Monday the 13th of 2023, when the US Treasury / Government / Federal Reserve, took actions to 'not bail out' Silicon Valley Bank, and take possession and shutter Silvergate and Signature bank (which serviced the bitcoin and 'crypto' industry).
As a result, we used our time to discuss this topic, how we think it was handled, the systemic dynamics that lead to it occurring in the first place, and our many critiques of them, and finally, why 'bitcoin fixes this' :)
