The best Sundays are for long reads and deep conversations. Earlier this week the Let’s Talk Bitcoin!

On today’s podcast, we continue the discussion, applying concepts and stories from “The Spider and the Starfish: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations,” a formational book on pre-blockchain decentralization written in the early 2000s, as the centralized U.S. military struggled to effectively dispatch a much smaller decentralized force in Afghanistan.
