Unchained with Laura Shin

Laura Shin is the host of Unchained, a podcast about cryptocurrencies and decentralized technology. For every episode, Laura does significant research and preparation, so the content turns out polished and high quality. Her enthusiasm for the subject of cryptocurrencies comes through in her reporting.

Podcasting about cryptocurrencies requires walking a fine line. Cryptocurrencies have a mixture of drama and exciting technology–which are both great for a journalist. But you can’t get too deep in the drama, because the podcast will feel like a tabloid. And you can’t get too deep in the technical weeds, because the listener will fall asleep.

Laura joins the show to discuss how she got into reporting on cryptocurrencies, why she got so obsessed with the subject, and her experience as a solo entrepreneurial journalist.
