In what may be his most controversial show ever, Andrew is joined by Let's Talk Bitcoin host Stephanie Murphy for the full hour to discuss a recent Youtube sensation, the latest news in Bitcoin, the Free State Project, and more.
2:06 Andrew debates Stephanie Murphy on the recent video of a woman being catcalled as she walked around New York City. Andrew believes this is part of a greater problem that is the culture of victimhood in the United States... and another reason The Land of the Free is on the decline.
10:38 Stephane explains why not all Bitcoin fans are "basement dwellers", and addresses whether or not she was hit on by the Winklevoss Twins at Bitcoin events.
12:02 Andrew explains why catcalling is part of a human issue, not a Gender Wars issue, and doesn't require government intervention.
18:00 Andrew and Stephanie discuss the alleged need to regulate Bitcoin... and why it's a farce. Stephanie explains why some Bitcoin companies actually want to be regulated as banks and why that's a bad idea. She shares an example of what happened with Skype and how a lack of regulation helped internet telephony.
20:32 Andrew shares why HSBC in Hong Kong is a terrible bank and impossible to send wire transfers with.
21:57 Stephanie discusses how Bitcoin can help small business owners like the Mexican Restaurant owner in Illinois who had her wealth stolen by the IRS without ever being charged.

23:25 Andrew says retirement accounts are the "biggest honey pot" left for the government to seize, the same way they did in Poland.
24:30 Stephanie speaks to why Bitcoin has dropped from $800 in January to $344 just ten months later. Should investors and newbies be scared to buy Bitcoin now despite such volatility?
26:37 How to hold Bitcoin without taking on the currency risk using services like Coinapult. (You can even use Bitcoins to book a private jet flight).
27:20 Is Bitcoin serving too many purposes as a currency, payment processor, and transfer mechanism?
27:48 Will Bitcoin exchanges be required to register with FinCEN? Will civil disobedience - as simple as using a VPN - be required?
30:00 Andrew says why he believes a gold confiscation won't be as easy to get around as you might think, because merchants will follow government directives to refuse payment in gold or silver. He says Americans will not practice as much civil disobedience as they like to think.
33:59 Andrew and Stephanie discuss xenophobia in the United States and question why "foreign born" individuals taking jobs in the United States is so bad. Andrew explains why he changed his opinion on the illegal immigration issue.
34:45 Are Free State Project members making their own clothing?
36:04 Why your own personal freedom plan should include WANTING to lose your job and become redundant. Unless you're a government worker.
