Episode 4: Steve Patterson on Credentialism, Cryptocurrency, and Creative Power

[Note: I’ve made episodes 1-6 live on SoundCloud, iTunes, and Stitcher just to front-load the podcast to get started.  I’ll be sharing individual posts about each episode this week, and then back to the every Monday schedule for new episodes.]

Steve Patterson is a philosopher and author without official credentials.  He knew he wanted to do philosophy and write about it, but he was turned off by the hoops and credentialism of the academic system.  He set out on his own as an independent intellectual.  We discuss his journey, his book What’s the Big Deal About Bitcoin?, and how he manages his day in order to continue creating.
