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.

Learn With Me

Renegade University

Join me at Thad Russell’s Renegade University. There are some incredibly cool courses coming up in the next month:

Finally, Thad is partnering with Scott Horton to bring you Scott’s two Renegade University courses and his new book, Enough Already: Time to End The War on Terror, as a super inexpensive package deal. Buy it now!

Liberty Classroom

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.

Crypto Resources

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!)

  • Check out 3Commas for crypto trading bots.

  • Join BlockFi to earn interest on your crypto.

  • Join Binance or Binance US to start trading. (Note, if you join Binance, we’ll split a percentage of your initial investment. Binance US gives the whole commission to me.)

A quick word of warning: In order to comply with IRS regulations and various and sundry state laws, Binance's United States operation is entirely run by Binance dot US. Binance dot com is for non-US customers only.

A quick tip: It's important to remain safe and secure online. Using a VPN, you can hide your location from hackers, malicious websites, governments, and other nefarious ne'er-do-wells. I've had great results with Proton VPN and IP Vanish.
