SXSW Sessions

May 23, 2022

Ben McKenzie, star of popular TV shows like The OC, Southland, and Gotham, has become a vocal critic of the crypto economy, including the role that his fellow celebrities play in shilling for various cryptocurrencies, the largely unregulated crypto exchanges on which they trade, and of course their own ape NFTs. Joined by Motherboard's Edward Ongweso Jr., The New Republic's Jacob Silverman, and other special guests, McKenzie diagnoses the ills of the volatile crypto industry and offers listeners a dose of anti-FOMO, making them glad they've missed out on a market rife with manipulation and fraud. Enjoy a healthy serving of crypto skepticism or, if you're a Bitcoin maxi, a chance to argue with Ryan from Chino.
