Today on “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at the shift in tone around SBF following the FTX collapse. Both the House and the Senate are holding hearings on FTX next week, and have confirmed that if former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried doesn’t testify voluntarily, he could be compelled via subpoena. The show also covers Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s fight against Silvergate and crypto-serving banks, as well as Rep. Ritchie Torres’ recommendation for an investigation into Gary Gensler and the Securities and Exchange Commission’s conduct and failure to look at FTX.

“The Breakdown” is written, produced by and features Nathaniel Whittemore aka NLW, with editing by Rob Mitchell and research by Scott Hill.
