Today on “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at the recent U.S. Senate Banking Committee hearing on stablecoins. More contentious than the previous week’s House Financial Services Committee hearing on crypto, NLW argues the hearing helps us understand the current arguments against stablecoins from some of their most important political opponents.

“The Breakdown” is written, produced by and features Nathaniel Whittemore aka NLW, with editing by Rob Mitchell, research by Scott Hill and additional production support by Eleanor Pahl. Adam B. Levine is our executive producer and our theme music is “Countdown” by Neon Beach. The music you heard today behind our sponsor is “Dark Crazed Cap” by Isaac Joel.
