BB25: Spring Awakening with Brian Norton
Spring Awakening with Brian Norton
One of my favorite Blackbird guests is back, baby! Brian Norton, who gave us the whole story of his dynamic professional life last time he was here (pre-rebrand), returns to talk about his next great festival, Spring Awakening. We also chat about The Crypto 6, geodesic domes, festival music, and, of course coffee.
If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, get thee to Squatchfest: Spring Awakening this weekend!
Brian’s coffee is delicious, and his coffee subscription service is more than just a box of coffee every month. Subscribe today, and you’ll be a member of his elite coffee community. (And you’ll get a box of coffee every month as an added bonus!)
Camp at Brian's, Camp SuNeeKee. Or if indoors is more your thing, rent his Airbnb. If you've never signed up for Hipcamp before, use my link or enter offer code JAMESJDD896F at checkout to get a $10 credit!

I’ve renewed my Basic Membership to Tom Woods’s Liberty Classroom so many times that I finally just sprung for the lifetime Master Membership. I recommend you do the same. You’ll get unlimited access to courses on history, economics, political theory, logic, and even literature taught by liberty-loving professors from colleges and universities around the world. It’s the antidote to the cathedral.
I started trading crypto, mainly using bots by 3Commas, after interviewing Pavel twice. So far this year, my portfolio has doubled. I’m not giving you advice or anything, but if you’re interested, please click the links below to get in the game!
Use the Ledger Nano X wallet to keep your crypto secure when it’s not on an exchange (which it shouldn’t be unless it’s actively making you money!)
