EP98: Weekend at Bernie's

EP98: Weekend at Bernie's

We’ve always wanted to do an “Orange Pill Live” episode, to test our abilities in answering the questions of a precoiner and to see if (during the course of a podcast) we could convince someone to buy themselves their first Bitcoin. 

That was the intention of this episode, but in the time it’s taken us to schedule the pod with Bernie, he’d already got himself off zero! 

However, Bernie is Brendo’s mate, so we thought we’d go ahead with the call and press record anyway, and only publish it if we thought it might help someone out there. 

It turns out, Bernie has gone from zero to well down the road of hero in 2 short months, but he gave us a great perspective on the issues and questions a new Bitcoiner has right now. 


We discuss: 

  • Bulked-up Brendo 

  • “Crypto” misconceptions 

  • What made Bernie take the first step into Bitcoin 

  • The challenge of buying a home and deposit requirements 

  • University (HECS) debt indexation 

  • Lack of government support, lies about inflation, stimulus cheques, UBI and something having changed 

  • Trying to outrun inflation 

  • Savings accounts, stocks, risk taking and having a go 

  • What Bernie did practically when he decided to buy some Bitcoin 

  • Hot and Cold wallets 

  • Understanding a non-physical asset 

  • Personal responsibility, 2FA and key storage 

  • Steel Seedplates 

  • Speaking in Bitcoin or Sats 

  • The gradually then suddenly event horizon 

  • Volatility, risk taking and bag pumping 

  • Rewards programmes 

  • Why does Bitcoin crash and is it a buying opportunity 

  • Murrurundi golf

If you’ve not heard Peter Dunworth’s valuation model for Bitcoin (frankly, what are you doing with your life), go back and listen to episodes 70 and 77, but although he’s been spruiking it all over town and asking someone to challenge it, no one has...until now. 

We, completely unfairly invited Pete back on under false pretences and then hit him with “his nemesis waiting in the green room”.  We wanted to see if we could shake his conviction or rattle his composure.  Listen to find out if we could. 

Settle in with a coffee. This is long one.  We discuss: 


  • Exponential rise of Bitcoin and fall of Fiat 

  • Positioning and wealth preservation 

  • The distinction between risk and volatility 

  • Resistance to change 

  • The opportunity of buying in a SMSF 

  • The importance of mobile

  • Blackrock, ETF’s and what does Larry Fink 

  • Liquidity drain 

  • Client’s will demand Bitcoin exposure from their financial adviser 

  • Banking restrictions 

  • Why does the bull run ever stop and the point of no return 

  • Taking profit, a risk on behaviour 

  • What happens when AI and the machines start draining liquidity 

  • Why ransomware only ever wants Bitcoin 

  • Uber 

  • ELI5 and ELI2 

  • The Bitcoin Adviser 

  • Starved of original thought 

  • Unit bias 

  • Moving towards self-actualisation

If you don’t know what they are, whatever you do, don’t look it up or listen to this podcast. 

There is no one that can segue from high voltage power transmission to upper decker’s and back quite like Daz Bea.  Yes, what’s happening in our world right now is damn serious, but we all need to find the fun in it too and that’s why we keep asking Daz onto the pod. 

He brings a wealth of knowledge around electricity, net zero targets, issues and opportunities in Australia and beyond, is a founding member of Looking Glass Education, is a proud family man and Queenslander, sings at the weekend and writes books in his ‘spare’ time.  I’m tired just reading that!

  • Twitter v Nostr (particularly Primal) 

  • Protocols v Platforms 

  • Nostr documentary 

  • Puppies

EP93: Life’s a Breez with Ivan Makedonski

EP93: Life’s a Breez with Ivan Makedonski has been around for a while, and to be honest I didn’t know much about it, so when Ivan reached out to have a chat it seemed like as good a time as any to start learning. 

Located in Sofia, Bulgaria, Ivan (@Nackoo2000) is the Chief of Staff (Chief of Stuff) and first non-developer to work for Breez. He’s my favourite type of bitcoiner...the ones that are here for the mission first, knowing the money will take care of itself. 


We discuss: 

  • Primal on Nostr (desktop). 100x improvement 

  • Being orange-pilled by your lady 

  • Devoting a holiday to prove her wrong 

  • We’re all on the same team. Love not money 

  • Bitcoiners with conviction are those who first tried to prove it a scam 

  • Bitcoin striking an intense emotional button 

  • The ultimate measuring stick is unit of energy 

  • The challenge of explaining Bitcoin to loved ones 

  • Not asking for permission. Just starting and trying to make an impression 

  • The practicalities of remote working 

  • Being aligned on the mission and genuine care for your colleagues 

  • Bitcoiners coming out of the shadows in Bulgaria 

  • The functionality of Breez and the importance of Lightning as the medium of exchange  

  • Lightning Service Providers 

  • Business and Personal Goals 

  • Custodial versus Non-Custodial and improving reliability 

  • Saving versus Using Bitcoin 

  • Spending Sats creates another node in the network 

  • Instant settlement 

  • Aligning incentives and split payments 

  • Consequences for cheating

EP92: Bitcoin Karma with Scott, Mallory and Charlotte Sibley

EP92: Bitcoin Karma with Scott, Mallory and Charlotte Sibley

Some would call it Karma.  The more you try to do good, the more good seeks you out. 


We started the Kids Art Competition with a modest 200,000 Satoshi’s to give away and our fingers crossed, but at time of writing, that prize is now 1,222,047 sats. Cool, right (thanks to all the supporters). 


We also got an e-mail from Scott and Mallory Sibley, whose daughter Charlotte wanted to enter the competition, and they wanted to add a few prizes as well (if that didn’t disqualify Charlotte!) 


They have kindly offered to donate a copy of their books “Goodnight Bitcoin” and “If You Give a Monster a Bitcoin” to the winner of the 0–4-year-old competition, and a copy of their game “SHAmory” to the winners of the other 3 age groups.  Plus, there will be a 50% discount at to all those who enter the competition. 


We are very grateful for this kind gesture.  So, get creative kids! 


We asked them to come on the podcast to tell their story.  We discuss: 


  • Pacific Time minimalism 

  • Recognising that Bitcoin families working and learning together is important 

  • Teaching in a fun way 

  • Bringing the skills you have into Bitcoin 

  • Realising that you’re part of something special 

  • Simplifying complex concepts 

  • Satoshi and Hal 

  • Manufacturing a product with no experience 

  • SHAmmy for Africa 

  • Built with Bitcoin 

  • Raising money to build a water well 

  • Finding a Bitcoin designer 

  • Selling bracelets for Satoshis

EP91: Can 88 Bitcoin Maxis Buy a Golf Course with MirbooHodl

EP91: Can 88 Bitcoin Maxis Buy a Golf Course with MirbooHodl

We start with a quick shill for the Australian Bitcoin Industry Body’s petition for the RBA to hold 2% of assets in Bitcoin. More details at: 



For more details, listen to this discussion with Dale and Jeremy on The Why Bitcoin Show:  


Brendo and I are golfers...not great golfers, but we try. So, when MirbooHodl / GreatGrandMan (Dom. A Nostr maxi. Npub below) reached out a couple of weeks ago about a Golf meets Bitcoin project – 88 Sats – we wanted to talk about it. 

I’ll be honest and say there were a couple of red flags, but after some back and forth over Nostr DM’s we realised that Dom was an open book and was happy for us to question the maxi credentials of the project. 

More than anything, this a pod about community building in a Bitcoin world. We discuss: 


  • Can 88 bitcoiners buy a golf course 

  • How long will it take and how to store the Bitcoin until then 

  • Why 1 Aussie “oddball” from Victoria wants to own a golf course in Canada 

  • Running golf tournaments with Satoshi prizes 

  • Creating a Bitcoin only community and a circular economy 


  • 88 Sats: Npub1ke3gzakud8hvdpmxxkhzymf87tkznnhmlj78gdqj4t9rqqmkhlws52gfzw 

  • Jor: Npub103m96sra82w4agghew9cdxtzs4s8sl7qsjsvw6h653yml0gjrkzqefd3h5 


  • Finding Bitcoin without social media 

  • Primed for Bitcoin after going down the carnivore and regenerative agriculture rabbit holes 

  • Wearing the Bitcoin merch in your fiat world 

  • Low time preference 

  • Building a node within 3 weeks of buying his first Bitcoin 

  • Leaving the nihilism behind 

  • Allergy to bureaucracy

EP89: Who Has the Best Hair with @btcessex

EP89: Who Has the Best Hair with @btcessex

Anyone we’ve met in person will verify that my hair isn’t one of my strengths. Brendo would claim it’s one of his, but that’s a matter of opinion. So, you’d be forgiven for wondering what the hell we’re doing talking to a hairdresser on the podcast. 


Frankly, if you’d asked us a month ago if that would ever happen, I imagine a hearty laugh would have been the response. But...a month is a long time in Bitcoin! 


Aaron reached out to have a chat and told us that we needed to hear about the confluence of Bitcoin and Hairdressing. So, who the hell are we to dismiss something we had zero knowledge of. And, you know what, he was totally right! 


We discuss: 

  • Irresponsible parenting and nasty DM’s 

  • Eurovision 

  • Bitcoin meetups in Essex 

  • Mainstream clickbait and weather warnings 

  • Extreme career change and the importance of enjoying what you do even if it means starting from the bottom 

  • Supermodels and A-listers 

  • Fiat sucking the life out of the UK hairdressing industry 

  • Shrinkflation 

  • Fear of speaking up 

  • The problem with minimum wages 

  • Unintended consequences when you remove the free market and skew incentives 


  • Our poor shampoo choices 

  • Rip-off culture 

  • The power of the QR code. Connecting the physical with the digital. 

  • Win/Win relationships 

  • 95% rejection to begin with, but those early adopters are winning 

  • Bizarro Superman 

  • Discounts for Bitcoin gives you a double dip 

  • “Bitcoin Accepted” on invoices 

  • Looking for the pain points in your industry 

  • Static URL’s for curry 

  • Bcash trolling 

  • Small businesses getting rekt by lockdowns 

  • Bitcoin being easier to navigate in real life 

  • Hanging on to a maximalist 

  • Buying the Bitcoin domain for your town

EP87: Orange-Pilling Countries with Samson Mow

EP87: Orange-Pilling Countries with Samson Mow

While most of us spend years trying to convince our cousin/sibling/mum that we’re not crazy and that “it might make sense just to get some in case it catches on”, there are others among us that are operating at an altogether higher level. Samson Mow is one of those people. 


As the CEO of JAN3, he’s working on nation-state adoption and accelerating hyperbitcoinization, but he didn’t set out to do that, it just happened one day. 


He kindly took some time out of his hectic schedule to hang out with a couple of Idiots.  Here’s what we discussed: 


  • Will we ever operate on block time so that time difference is no longer a thing (we sound rough in the morning!) 

  • The state of DMs when you have a large following 

  • How to prioritise your workload 

  • The mission of JAN3 (top-down and bottom-up) 

  • How opportunities present themselves 

  • Varying levels of knowledge, understanding and receptivity 

  • Explaining that Bitcoin is just Money 

  • Awareness of money being devalued versus the high time preference nature of politics 

  • The next El Salvador. Mexico?

  • Bitcoin becoming a key part of political discourse. RFK

  • The importance of face-to-face, particularly in removing the fear of asking questions 

  • How many of us must understand Bitcoin 

  • Taking a break after hyperbitcoinization and the timescale for that 

  • The most powerful force is necessity (Argentina, Lebanon) 

  • Adopting Bitcoin before your value is destroyed 

  • The problem with centralised power 

  • The pros and cons of living on a Bitcoin standard 

  • The decline in developed countries 

  • Brendo’s unsuccessful application 

  • Infinite Fleet and gaming 

  • Fads 

  • Australia and Canada

EP86: Another Bloody Dunworth with @MichaelDunwort1

EP86: Another Bloody Dunworth with @MichaelDunwort1

It's like buses. You don't see one for ages and then 2 come along at once! But seriously, Christmas dinner at the Dunworth’s must be an interesting experience. 


Michael is the time travelling bitcoiner, that has locked Bitcoin in 2140 to ensure miners still have an incentive to mine even once the final block reward is issued. That’s a great story – it's a wonderful story – but you may have heard it at Bitcoin Alive, a bush bash or on another podcast that Michael has done (we’d recommend EP96 of Meyrick’s Dabbling Path, EP5 with Discovering Bitcoin and the recent release from The Why Bitcoin Show). 


We’ve delayed doing this one, because frankly we didn’t know what we could add, but once we realised the answer to that was Nothing, we decided to just get together and shoot the shit because he’s a fun bloke to share a beer with. We discuss: 


  • The return of the alpha 

  • Sats or Bits 

  • Halving, Halvening or Hal Finney-ing 

  • Iron Man and Proof or Work 

  • Having someone on your journey 

  • Consistently showing up 

  • Fixed interest rates in Australia 

  • Dropping/Opting out of university 

  • Startup culture, strategies, risk and Wyre 

  • Egotistical restaurant owners 

  • When you should change your beliefs and opinions 

  • Seeing life through the Bitcoin filter 

  • Bitcoin miners are just monkeys 

  • Seeing the tech before the money 

  • Satoshi 

  • AI as the biggest inflection point of Bitcoin adoption 

  • SegWit2x and the power of the node 

  • Ordinals 

  • Backing yourself, but having support in your corner 

  • The warped VC industry
