Bitcoin Magazine Podcast

Apr 15, 2021

This week on the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University Craig Warmke. Professor Warmke is quite unique in academia because he has fallen deep down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. As a scholar in philosophy, ethics, and human nature Craig is fascinated by Bitcoin's incentive structure and the implications of Bitcoin on society.

Professor Warmke is saddened by the state of academia and laments about the broken incentives around tenure that force academics to hyper specialize rather than encouraging them to take more complete and wholistic world views and studies. Warmke believes it is this hyper focus in academia that causes most academics to miss Bitcoin altogether.

Professor Warmke is currently managing a research collective around the ethics and philosophy around Bitcoin called with 2 fellow Bitcoin Philosophers Andrew Bailey and Bradley Rettler. The three write papers to demystify why Bitcoin is good as well as they are working on a book titled Resistance Money.

Please enjoy this wide ranging conversation with Professor Craig Warmke .
