Bitstein on Bitcoin, Meat, and Arctic Carnivore Diets – Seminar 9

In this seminar we host Michael Goldstein, @bitstein, of the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute. We discuss our two favorite topics: bitcoin and meat. Michael curated a page with very rich resources on meat, including the amazing story of Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson. We are also fortunate to have among our attendees in the seminar Timothy Allen, filmmaker, adventurer, and photographer who has spent years traveling with nomadic tribes in the Arctic and worked on the BBC’s Human Planet documentary. We discuss the diet and health of meat-eating tribes as described in Stefansson’s and Timothy’s travels, the joys of moving reindeer across Siberia while eating raw frozen fish, and the arctic version of red wine.
