The Tatiana Show Ep. 163 E.G Nadhan

So I know what a white hat is, I know what a grey hat is, and a black hat.  But what the heck is a Red Hat? I was intrigued to meet Nadhan, who goes by a single name like Cher, or Madonna.  He stood out because true to the company name, he was adorned with a red baseball cap with “Red Hat” written in white letters. I suppose I should have known, since it turns out Red Hat is a multi billion dollar company that is at the forefront of open innovation and enterprise solutions.  The coolest part was that I actually followed along in their process as described by Nadhan, and it’s pretty mind blowing. Learn more in this interview about open source technology and how it’s changing the world in its application.

About the Guests (Bio goes here):

E.G.Nadhan is Chief Technology Strategist for the Central Region at Red Hat. He provides thought leadership on various concepts including Cloud, Analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain through multiple channels including industry conferences, Executive Round tables as well as customer specific Executive Briefing sessions. With 25+ years of experience in the IT industry selling, delivering and managing enterprise solutions for global corporations, he works with the executive leadership of enterprises to innovatively drive Digital Transformation with a healthy blend of emerging solutions and a DevOps mindset.

The Tatiana Show: World Crypto Con Las Vegas: Mike Cernovich

At the beginning of November, Tatiana traveled to Las Vegas for the World Crypto Convention.  There were a lot of interesting blockchain folks to talk to, but Michael Cernovich is a little different.  For this segment, Tatiana is joined by Sasha Hodder, blockchain attorney and host of the Hodlcast podcast.

Cernovich is a controversial journalist, writer, and filmmaker.  Michael has been on the activist scene for years, most recently in support of the 2016 Trump Election and he was instrumental in throwing of the Deploraball in DC.  While some may not agree with his politics, most that meet him admit he is a “nice guy.” We certainly found him to be kind and interesting, especially in his efforts to support Lyn Ulbricht by sharing the petition with his half a million Twitter followers.  We were very excited to learn (and get an early preview) of his upcoming film “Hoaxed” that exposes the media industry’s propaganda and the history of fake news.

About the Guests:

Mike Cernovich is a journalist, author, and filmmaker.  Cernovich has reported everywhere from protests on the streets to the White House.  Congressman John Conyers resigned after Cernovich uncovered documents revealing a secret sexual harassment settlement.

The Tatiana Show- Naomi Brockwell & Kevin Mckernan

Highlights include:

• Sequencing the cannabis genome
• The process of submitting a project for funding from the Dash DAO
• The banking crisis in the cannabis industry
• Medical marijuana and CBD oil
• Obstacles posed to the cannabis industry by the US government
• Will the Trump administration legalize cannabis?
• How blockchain can become part of popular culture
• Reclaiming the mainstream narrative of bitcoin and blockchain technology
• The recent Facebook purge and alternative social media platforms

We’re moving to a new audio format! While I enjoy seeing the lovely faces of all my guests, we are trying some new things for The Tatiana Show. Audio-only enables me to work with less bandwidth while I’m recording shows on the road, and makes for easier editing. This means listeners will get more regular, top quality episodes!

Thank you always to The Tatiana Show sponsors:, The Bitcoin CPA, CryptoCompare, and my marketing company, Crypto Media Hub.

Kevin Mckernan kicks off this episode and treats us to his extraordinary range of knowledge and experiences from the cannabis and cryptocurrency spaces. Kevin has spent his career researching and developing various DNA sequencing technologies in both the research and clinical industries. He is the CSO and Founder of Medicinal Genomics.

Kevin explains how he obtained funding for his cannabis genome sequencing project from the Dash DAO. For people who don’t know, Dash is a cryptocurrency that not only uses its fees to pay miners, like Bitcoin does, but also puts tokens from its fees into a treasury. People can then propose projects to Dash stakeholders and receive money from that fund.

The Patent and Trade Office (PTO) has posed various obstacles to the cannabis industry, particularly through a controversial and overly broad patent issued in 2015, which Kevin helped to oppose. We also discuss the banking crisis in cannabis and in general how governments have stifled cannabis research and innovation for generations.

Mckernan explains that “through prohibition, everyone started breeding for high THC, and that has come at the cost of all the other cannabinoids not being made” (20:23). There are rarer cannabinoids, with more therapeutic effects. Kevin and his team targeted one of those rarer strains to sequence for their Dash project. We also delve into some examples of diseases and ailments that can be aided by cannabis and CBD oils.

At 24:00, Kevin treats us to a brief world history of cannabis, discussing how different strains originated in different parts of the world. The earliest cannabis was present 20 million years ago in the Hindu Kush mountain range. Ancient people grew hemp for its fibers, which were useful for making sails for their ships.

Do you think the Trump administration will legalize marijuana? We discuss how new cannabis industries have affected the American economy and how Canada’s recent legalization of cannabis could force the Trump administration’s hand in U.S. policy-making (34:00).

Kevin’s event is Cannmed, currently taking place at UCLA this week.

Next we’re joined by Naomi Brockwell (37:30). Naomi is a film and television producer for John Stossel; she also hosts her own Youtube show on blockchain, bitcoin, and technology. Her newest project is a crypto thriller noir series called Hard Fork. She discovered the project through Steemit, where she connected with Doug Karr, an alumni of the Sundance festival, and Christopher James Baker (of the television series, Ozarks) as they were putting together this blockchain sci fi thriller. Like Kevin McKernan, they also received funding from the Dash DAO, and they’ve raised their first million dollars. The show is still in development. They will go into production and are hoping for a release at the end of 2019. Follow Naomi on social media (@NaomiBrockwell) or check out to stay updated.

Naomi says of the Hard Fork series: “I wanted to get involved because all you hear about with crypto is the negative. ‘Oh it’s a bubble. Everyone in crypto is a loser.’ The mainstream media just talks about the drug dealers and money launderers and how they’re awful. But blockchain is the most empowering technology we’ve seen in the last hundred years. This is a way to decentralize trust. This is a way to completely revolutionize the traditional financial sector. Please do not discount this. Let’s talk about all the ways that this can change lives, how this can give people back more freedom, more financial autonomy. So I think getting in control of that narrative and creating a mainstream-audience-accessible series that actually looks at the way this can be a really empowering tech is what drew me to the project.”

Cheers to that!

Naomi came to cryptocurrency from a background in Austrian economics, in which economists like F.A. Hayek were eerily prescient about cryptocurrency. Speaking of economics, I’ll be seeing Naomi next on the Contra Cruise! Comment below if you’ll be there. Josh is missing out, but he’s helping with the Bitcoin Lightning Network Hack Day in New York.

(56:00) Finally, we discuss Steemit, alternative social media, the recent Facebook purge of many libertarian pages and outlets, and how other activists have struggled with banning on various platforms. Naomi is a big fan of BitChute, an alternative to Youtube. If you’re interested in more on these topics, check out another recent episode of The Tatiana Show, in which I interviewed Bill Ottman of and Matt Asher of

Thanks so much to my co-host Joshua Scigala, and our awesome guests! We hope you enjoy the episode!

The Tatiana Show- Scott Horton

Late 2018 will mark the first time that children born after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 can enlist and join the still ongoing war in Afghanistan. The Tatiana Show marks this dubious milestone with our episode featuring Scott Horton, director of the Libertarian Institute, host of the Scott Horton Show podcast on, and author of “Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan” (2003).

The episode kicks off by noting a resurgence of interest in America’s foreign relations with Russia since Trump’s election. Horton gives a brief overview of the cold war, outlining dynamics between global superpowers since the end of World War II in 1944. He describes the communist construction of the Berlin wall, the fallout of a destroyed Europe, and America’s inheritance of a world empire and its subsequent recklessness in that role.

Picking up again in the 90s, Horton reviews the recent Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama era presidencies, and cultural shifts in the perceptions of communism, socialism, fascism, and capitalism. He also examines U.S. justifications for wars in the middle east and the ways in which their reasoning falls flat.

Finally, the team returns to the present era Trump administration, discussing how Trump’s trade policies affect geopolitical relations and what moves the U.S. might make next on the world stage.
