The episode begins as Mike ponders his reputation in the Bitcoin community, having been ostracized following an ill-fated attempt to engage in a form of argument with Ammous, Internet-style.
As often happens online, the situation escalates quickly and Rob Mitchell of The Bitcoin Game podcast gives Mike a warning: watch out.
This uniquely in-depth edition of Bitcoin Car Talk examines the crypto community itself, and its constituent characters. To what extent is the intrinsic value of bitcoin and its various altcoins and forkcoins derived from these people’s personalities, interactions, and above all, butthurt? The answer to that question may be difficult to swallow, or even fatal.
It’s Mike who puts his very life on the line to investigate these issues through personal experience — though perhaps not intentionally.

Later, it also looks into the hypothetical of whether other digital assets could succeed with car-based video series of their own. Litecoin creator Charlie Lee thinks he can improve it with speed, while Decred’s Marco Peereboom is… well, you’ll just have to watch to see.
As to the overarching question of whether Saifedean Ammous’ book “The Bitcoin Standard” is worth reading, we can’t say — this reporter (and poor newsreader) has not read a book since podcasts and YouTube were invented.
