The leading voice in crypto journalism
Laura’s already been hugely successful with Unchained and as the leading Forbes writer on cryptoassets. No one books more interesting leaders in the blockchain space and asks them harder, more thought provoking questions. She’s been blazing a trail in this space the last few years when very few top tier journalists saw crypto as a passing fad. She deserves credit for bringing the power of the blockchain to the forefront of mass media. Years from now, I will be proud to say “I listened to and met Laura Shin before this all got so big.” This should be a top new source for anyone wanting to learn about the importance of blockchain beyond the token prices.
Make sure you go back and listen to her interviews in Unchained! The Vitalik interview will blow your mind.
Unchained is the most informative podcast on crypto. Am very eager to hear Laura contribute even more with this new podcast.
Quality Podcaster in Crypto Space
People everywhere are talking about the hottest new Crypto / Blockchain News podcast: UnConfirmed. Not really, the first episode does not air until this Friday. But I’m giving it 5 stars based on the high quality delivered by Laura Shin’s other podcast; UnChained. I’m curious if this means a former Forbes reporter will be dealing with unconfirmed news stories – how else to be relevant in such a dynamic domain? Also cannot wait for her next podcast: UnRepeatable – about the level of civil discourse on Blockchain social media. OK, that last statement was a joke, but I am looking forward to more from this podcaster.
