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.

The Tatiana Show- talking P3D, FOMO, POWH w. Kingsley Edwards, Preston Byrne

Hi everyone!  I have been talking about P3D,, and FOMO3D for about a month or so now to anyone who will listen.  I have suffered many eye rolls at what a fool I am to be taken in by this OBVIOUS ponzi… but I persisted.  I wasn’t going to let close minded thinking shut me down! I thought it was an exciting project and experiment. Hopefully you guys agree!

It was good to hear Kingsley’s perspective, as he is the bringer of P3D to me, as well as one of my first Bitcoin friends.  Preston was a great skeptic, and was chosen for his tweet a few weeks ago around when P3D was popping.  Petros brought in the dev perspective.  Josh was a bit skeptical, but def intrigued.  Where did we end up after the convo?  I don’t know, but it was a cool exploration!

We also had on Sharon from Chicago Blockchain Project. Check out the conference this weekend Aug 24-25!  I can’t wait to perform, and I know I have some cool panels with some other neat music/blockchain projects.  The vibe in Chicago is awesome, and I love Navy Pier, especially the ferris wheel!
