The "What is Money?" Show

God, the role of the state, and Bitcoin with Josh Jalinski (WiM170)

Episode Notes

My friend, fellow investor and man of faith, Joshua Jalinski joins me to explore how as a Nation we are losing our sight to see God and the Christian values we were built upon and how that is leading to increased statism and confusion.
