After a whirlwind week of Blockchain masterclasses and Bitcoin debates, we’re back in the studio to talk about the latest things coming out of Wall Street, along with the big ticket items from the Google IO conference.

Along the way we’re talking decentralisation, smart contracts, flying cars and automated ports. In our privacy and security segment, we’re covering Coinstorage Guru, a handy way of splitting up your seed phrase – and we’ll also be talking about Reddit in our tool of the week. Enjoy!
