This is a podcast from MIT Media Lab’s Digital Currency Initiative on technology, society, and ethics called Grey Mirror (Soundcloud, Youtube, iTunes, Spotify, Overcast).

In today’s episode, I interview Larry Lessig, a Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, a co-founder of Creative Commons, and an advocate for “Fixing Democracy First”. We chat about #POTUS1 (an anti-corruption initiative that Larry is leading), updates to his pathetic dot, and how he’s thinking about crypto.

Also, if you’re interested in Fixing Democracy First, check out https://equalcitizens.us/ and this video from Mansur Gidfar.

Disclaimers: This interview is not investment advice. The views and opinions expressed in this article are my own and do not reflect my employer :). I own less than $5000 of any given cryptocurrency, so my monetary incentive is not too aligned with Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.
