Plus, Doop Snogg, and details about the upcoming Crypto Island Zoom Meeting
I am thrilled to hear Sruthi’s name in the credits
I wanted to say, I love how the manager vs agent debate came up (reminded me of my favorite show Bojack Horseman, shout out Princess Carolyn). Then later in the show you even brought up Bojack 😅
I'm loving this podcast so much! After having a super stressful day yesterday, it made my day today to see I got a new Crypto Island episode.
Gonna pop on the pod and take the dogs out for a hike after work. Looking forward to it!
As for the zoom meeting, that’s blessed. I have the day off for Canada Day. I will be there.
Loved the dig on 'Alex, Inc.' and how it was "watched by literally tens of people" haha. Better hire your agent and manager now because the scripts for 'PJ, Inc.' are going to start rolling in soon.
Keep up the good work Vogt. Make sure you show up in a timely manner to the board meeting tomorrow, the higher ups are expecting good things.
New favourite podcast. I’ve heard so much about crypto and NFTs from other podcasts, but I feel like this is the first time I’m hearing the social phenomenon of it actually being explored. It’s so strange and hilarious!
I wonder if you'll regret naming your podcast Crypto Island - what if it respwans an interest in Crypto Island and it actually materializes because of the publicity?
Great work! Love the reporting.
The story about the theft/recovery felt a little uneventful, but Dick Doyle, the Paris Hilton and StartUp gags, and Surprise Sruthi propelled this. I feel like I've heard a lot of the same criticisms about NFTs from crypto skeptics repeated time and time again, but hearing a Hollywood insider rag on them and make fun of the flawed attempts at IP innovation was refreshing and hilarious. Great episode. Excited for the board meeting!
One of my favorite episodes so far. Keep up the great work!
Hi PJ, I’ve really enjoyed the podcast - wanted to provide a little bit of context that feels important about the commentary on Brie Larson, Gwenyth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, and Eva Longoria. Those four women actually got a lot of attention for purchasing and displaying Flower Girls (of which I am the lead developer). There’s lots I’d love to share but the relevant piece is that Flower Girls at the time of those women’s purchase (and still as of today) did not provide commercial IP to holders, I think they were genuinely attracted to the art and the commitment to supporting children and charity.
Thanks for a genuinely curious and healthily skeptical take on crypto.
I was unable to attend the board meeting. Will there be a recording posted?
I think you got hosed by reply all, came to find you after the end of the old show, you were missed and it wasn’t the same without you. Glad you’re back doing your own thing! I don’t think you did anything wrong!
Enjoying the Podcast - have you purchased any NFT's yet and been active on discord?
This series is amazing. I have this ongoing question about Crypto and blockchain in general.. which is are there projects out there that use the technology for something other than finance? I just hear that there is (I've heard you can exchange energy on blockchain?)...but don't really understand the actual details. Somehow getting a better understanding of people who are doing real world applications of the technology not only for finance would help to understand just the the shear importance of the underlying democracy of the technology. But I guess the technology is in such a nascent stage that there isn't an example that has taken hold quite like crypto? Anyway, thanks for the show. It's good to hear your voice.
Really enjoying the series, thank you. A friend pointed out that this kiwi artist's anti-NFT NFT collection was excellent, and I suspect it might tickle you too: https://www.webworm.co/p/needlessfuckingthings2
Your podcast is the best intro to crypto anyone could ask for. Funny sidenote. Just as Crypto came crashing down, I was speaking at a tech conference and happened to pop in to a Blockchain session with a guy who had launched the Wu Tang Clan NFT. He floated: "wouldn't it be cool if we could fractionalise people?" He gave the example of being able to buy some Justin Bieber when he was a child muscian dropping youtube adds. He had overall a tone of sincerity, kindness and making the world a better place, but he had no cognitive dissonance about crypto owning gifted kids as the next step from NFTs. Why own a token of someone's talent, when you can own a fraction of the talent itself? Audience thought it was cool.
To be fair, it did remind me of David Bowie (always ahead of his generation!)'s Bowie bonds, which he used to buy his own IP, but it seems different when a successful artist is fractionalising their concerts to own their own IP, vs crypto investors owning a promising talent's future career. Specially a kid...
