Experienced series producer who has produced film and television commercials, nationally run shows, and independent films in both Toronto and Los Angeles. New since 2017 to the crypto space, but not new to interviewing celebrities, Olympic athletes, filmmakers, and musicians! Shannon has an open-minded approach to asking relevant questions. Her confidence and know how come from experience in storytelling and her commitment to finding the heart of the conversation by allowing a free exchange of ideas.
I’m shaking things up and turning the microphone around! Instead of doing the interviewing, I brought on a fellow TV veteran, Lisa Pickering, to interview me. I thought it would be good idea to talk about why I’m doing this podcast and what was it that motivated me to start learning about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in the first place. And what it comes down to is trying to make the technology, that I find incredibly exciting and revolutionary, easy to understand. Lisa Pickering, my interviewer, and I worked together years ago as Television Producers at MuchMusic in Toronto. We both come from a television background and we’re both fascinated by what’s happening in the blockchain space so we go through some of the basics, from a beginner’s perspective on what’s going on and what’s exciting for the future of this space. NOTE: there is one moment of explicit language in case you are language sensitive. Some of the things we talk about are: The Internet of Money by Andreas M. Antonopoulos https://www.amazon.com/Internet-Money-Andreas-M-Antonopoulos/dp/1537000454 Bitcoin White Paper https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf Federico Ast and Kleros https://kleros.io/ Amazon adopting blockchain technology https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2018/04/introducing-aws-blockchain-templates/ Goldman Sachs adopting blockchain technology http://www.goldmansachs.com/our-thinking/pages/blockchain/ The post 003.
