What the hell is going on in the land of cryptocurrency and NFTs? This week, Devindra and Engadget UK Bureau Chief Mat Smith chat with Manda Frough, co-host and producer of the Virtual Economy podcast, about the massive crypto crash. They discuss how the fall of the Luna cryptocurrency and its brother, TerraUSD, sent shockwaves through the industry.
They also delve into ICE’s surprisingly robust (and scary) surveillance system, as well as the DHS’s jammed disinformation board. Stay tuned before the show ends for our chat with Tim Miller and Jennifer Yuh Nelson, the co-creator and animation director of Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots.
