Too Long; Didn't Read

Is it a podcast? Is it a parody of the 90's British TV glory days? Or is it the greatest thing to hit YouTube and Spotify since Joe Rogan lit his first on-air doobie?

What do you get if you cross the latest blockchain and cryptocurrency news with a very British host who dreams of hosting his own comedy panel quiz show?

You get , of course!

Is it a podcast? Is it a parody of the 90's British TV glory days? Or is it the greatest thing to hit YouTube and Spotify since Joe Rogan lit his first on-air doobie?

Well, it's definitely a combination of the first two. I'll leave the latter quote for you to make. Either way here's a quick spoiler-free tease-your-heart-out run-down of episode one. If this doesn't tempt you to give us a try then, well, I'll probably try again sometime. I'm nothing if not perseverant.

The Games: Non-Fungible News

Non-Fungible News does exactly what it says on the tin, folks. It's a quirky test of our special guests' industry trivia news knowledge. Tune in if you want to find out:

  • Why was using Discord to organize the building of “Blockchain City” not the best idea ever?
  • How did a £10 deposit nearly pull decentralized bonds platform ‘pooltogether’ apart? 
  • How many What The F**#&s did someone give for 42 ETH?

    Why does every NFT PFP have six sides? 
  • Why did 21 year old Stefan Qin go straight from his exclusive interview on CNBC to boxing lessons?

+ Loads more!

Sailor’s Moonsssss

This round was a major pain in the ass to make, but a helluva lotta fun in the end. I won't go into the full details, but underneath this fabulous creation is a meme. Can you guess what it's all about before our guests? There's only one way to find out...

Sex n Drugs n Blockchain Balls

Our final round evolves the low-brow debauchery of crypto-innuendo, and add a little sprinkle of Drugs and Rock and Roll to the sex puns.

Do you know what you get if you cross the act of catching your happy puddle in your hand and then flinging it in your partner's face like some sort of sticky web, with the token of metaverse Decentraland?

Or what this refers to?

Again, only one way to find out!

Check it out and leave me a comment, review, or even a voicemail over on the website, it really really really makes my day!

And one final, cringe-worthy, extra special thank you to Dave Baker, who pretty much did all the heavy lifting on the VFX side of things and without whom I would have been a floppy mess.
