TTS181 Ryan and Scott of Music for Liberty

Scott and Ryan have been composing music together in the spirit of liberty since 2015.  I was lucky enough to meet them along the way in my journey, and have a great respect for artists that realize the need for a touch of freedom in the message.  It can be so powerful, as evidenced by Scott and Ryan’s work. We get into their journey, some of the challenges along the way for their political views, and some stories of success.  There have been a few notable releases we recommend, so please look in the bio below.

About the Guests:

Scott McRae and Ryan Rapsys founded Music for Liberty in 2015 in order to elevate the quality of music used in media focused around ideas of human liberty.  Since then, they have scored the feature film Little Pink House (about the Kelo vs. New London Supreme Court Case) for which they received the award for Best Score at the 2017 Anthem Film Festival, the documentary Can We Take a Joke? (which explores the intersection of comedy, free speech and outrage culture), and have provided music for media from organizations such as the Institute for Justice, Smock Media, The Atlas Society, Taliesin Nexus, Moving Picture Institute and others.  Their recent endeavor, the Composing Freedom Initiative, has two aims: 1) educate liberty-minded filmmakers about how to more effectively use music in their projects and 2) raise funds to augment the music budgets of media that celebrates human freedom and individualism.

Individually, they have each worked extensively in the entertainment industry. Scott has contributed his musical skills and knowledge to over 100 films and television shows, including Crazy Rich Asians, Fences, the Fast and Furious franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, Rush Hour 3, the Final Destination franchise, and Cold Mountain. He founded and runs Janen Music, which provides quality music preparation services and rents music to orchestras for live

performance. He co-produced two Christmas albums, and his score for The Box was nominated for Best Score at the Madrid Film Festival in 2014.

For nearly two decades, Ryan has composed music for numerous feature films, short films, documentaries, theatrical productions and commercial projects. His score for the short film Stay won Best Original Score at the Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood in 2016. He’s also released electronic music under the aliases Transistorface, Microquasar and Pineriver. He’s composed classical music, with concert performances by small ensembles up to full orchestra. His production music has been used in hundreds of television shows, including Dateline NBC and The Today Show. He owns and operates Total Music Metadata, a music service business which catalogs, edits and optimizes music tracks for licensing for music libraries and organizations, with clients including top trailer music houses as well as the in-house music library for Discovery Communications. He’s also served as a music supervisor and music editor for numerous projects.

TTS180 Kirk Phillips, The Bitcoin CPA

I am excited to have Kirk Phillips on this episode, he has been a long time supporter of The Tatiana Show and has helped me personally with my taxes. On this episode he joins us to speak about what you can do when you are getting SIM card attacked! He has been a victim himself and will tell us his experience and advise us on how to increase our security and how to  step up our digital identity game.

Here are some ways to protect yourself:

The 7 Secret Weapons from Crushing a SIM Card Attack

Kirk’s Double SIM Card Attack Story

#1 on 1-18-19 and #2 on 1-26-19

First things first: Where are the enemies?

Three Main Enemies/Attackers

  1. a)   Yourself: In crypto you are your own worst enemy
  2. b)  The External Enemy (The Hackers)
  3. c)   The Enemy Within (The most dastardly of ALL)

1)    “The Golden Thread Principle” Bifurcate your emails:

  1.    Communications email
  2.    Username email
  3.     Never the same for both

2)    Password Manager: LAST PASS (A digital vault for all your sites and platforms)

3)    Encrypted email service: PROTONMAIL

  1.    Jurisdictional power
  2.    Self owned and operated servers (no AWS-3rd party servers)

4)    Email Aliases for Obfuscation

  1.    Special single use username emails
  2.    Examples: the protonmail login (creation email), icloud, ATT ie phone account, Last Pass, Mega-Dropbox etc., recovery emails

5)    Cold storage is for more than private keys

  1.    2FA backup code
  2.    Anything else that has a back up codes
  3.     One time back up codes
  4.    Last Pass ie password manager emails and passwords
  5.    Protonmail main email and password

6)    Bifurcate your phone numbers (same as golden rule above but for mobile numbers)

  1.    Communications mobile phone
  2.    2FA mobile phone
  3.     Google voice to obfuscate your communications # if you can only have one phone
  4.    Google Fi or pre-paid burner phone

7)    Business vs. Personal: Add more obfuscation by creating business accounts

  1.    Biz identity points: Biz name, State of formation (WY privacy state), phone number and physical address
  2.    Create a mobile carrier account in business name

About the Guests:

Kirk Phillips, aka the TheBitcoinCPA, is an entrepreneur, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a self-taught woodworker therefore an artist of sorts in all areas of life. He brings the same attention to detail necessary for creating finely crafted furniture into the business world. He is fanatical about technology, business processes, fraud prevention, time management, learning and peace of mind. When Kirk discovered Bitcoin at the end of 2013 it magnified and extended his passions leading him down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole, an experience described by many Bitcoiners. A friend of his asked for advice saying, “Kirk, my husband and I want to invest $800 in a computer to mine bitcoin and make some money. What do you think?” to which he responded, “I don’t know anything about Bitcoin, I’ll have to get back to you.” This simple question was the birth of The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide.

TTS178 Caleb Slade of Salt


Caleb and Tatiana have hung out at several conferences before, and she’s been a big supporter of the SALT team early on.  However, at the Miami conference, they were able to get a bit further into exactly what SALT lending has to offer. It appears to be a pretty cool way to leverage your holdings, and it is a US based company, so the stricter laws may be helpful.  Who knows? Do your own research, but get a taste of what they have to say on this short but sweet Tatiana Show.

About the Guests:

Caleb Slade is co-founder and chief knowledge officer at SALT where he is responsible for cultivating and maintaining a strong company culture. He spearheads education and evangelism efforts for SALT and blockchain technology at large, and is also responsible for leveraging insights to explore opportunities for SALT to stay both relevant and innovative. Prior to co-founding, Caleb worked in mobile application development, product design, branding, marketing, customer experience and engagement, and graphic design, as well as loan collateral repossession. Caleb’s work in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space for the past three years has allowed him to follow his passion for adapting emerging technologies into simple and impactful products. He holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Colorado Denver.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 174 Open Bazaar

The Miami conference had a lot of wonderful participants, but I got a bit more familiar with a project I had heard about for a while.  Washington Sanchez gave me some insight into what the difference is between OB1.io and Open Bazaar.  Wondering what the evolution of free markets online using cryptocurrency looks like?  How does it stack up to the old #SilkRoad? The decentralized nature seems to be the key component that makes this viable, but perhaps you have something you notice after listening that you want to share?  Leave a comment below. Have you used Open Bazaar?  What about Haven?  

Thank you to our sponsor www.MetalPay.com (use code tatianashow to earn more rewards on signup).

About the Guests:

OpenBazaar is an open source project headed up by the company OB1.

OpenBazaar is the world’s first and only fully decentralized marketplace, which means it connects people directly and securely to each other via a peer-to-peer network rather than through a centralized website like online marketplace giants Alibaba, Amazon, or eBay.

OpenBazaar users can expect the most secure, most private, and most liberating experience of any ecommerce marketplace because it gives users complete control of their data and their business. There’s no big company behind the scenes that can act as a gatekeeper, collect data, or restrict transactions for anyone. And as a natural result of this, users don’t pay any fees to use OpenBazaar, ever, and there are no terms and conditions to sign.

The Tatiana Show Ep. 173 Crypto in Bermuda

I went to Bermuda a few times as a kid, and I always remember the pink sand.  Hearing about it from the local administration though, it sounds like an even better paradise for cryptocurrency.  It’s also only a 2.5 hour flight from NY, which is PRETTY APPEALING! Hear the answers to some questions you too probably have about what the benefits are to setting up shop in Bermuda?  How does it compare to the rest of the Caribbean? It’s always a challenge to find the most cutting edge jurisdiction, but the benefit of working in blockchain is that you’re not physically limited to where you are, at least not forever!  Listen on as I chat with Denis Pitcher and Wayne Smith from Bermuda to learn more about the regulatory environment and ecosystem.

About the Guests:

The Government of Bermuda consists of a Governor, a Deputy Governor, a Cabinet, and a Legislature based on two legislative chambers – a Senate and a House of Assembly.

Denis Pitcher is a tech co-founder and architect and his responsibility is to act as a technology visionary to pair his expertise in software design and development with his company’s vision and goals.

Denis’s task is to understand and combine a good user experience with adequate architecture of software and technology solutions to ensure business continuity and scalability. He evokes agile and customer development principles to put a process around the development of their product and continuously test their vision. This is built on a foundation of leading software development and architecture practices to ensure that they can react quickly to pivoting requirements and volatility in their business.

Even though I am in Acapulco, and the sun is oh so alluring, I still found time to do an episode with Dan Spuller from the Chamber of Digital Commerce to talk about the upcoming Summit.  We also got an update on the recent work being done in DC on behalf of the Blockchain community by Dan, Perianne, and their team.
