  1. Hello good sirs,

    Just wanted to follow up on a comment you guys made around 8:30 in this podcast regarding the US debts being downgraded (by S&P) and nothing much happening of it. Just wanted to link you two a couple articles and you can judge the news for yourselves.

    Also, as a fan of the show, it would be great to hear more about how the block chain is being used outside of digital currencies. The CEO of Overstock speaks to this a bit at the end of his speech at the Mises Institute. It’s a great speech overall if you haven’t heard it yet.
