Podcast series "Idea and Reality" - with Rahim Taghizadegan

Niko Jilch and economist Rahim Taghizadegan have just launched a mini-series on the topic of "Idea & Reality". A philosophical deep dive into the history and power of ideas, the meaning of ideologies as well as concepts of order, and how it can be shaken. Throughout, references are made to Bitcoin and the "stay humble, stack sats" lifestyle.

This weekly podcast about Bitcoin is the initiative of the Viennese financial journalist Niko Jilch. The goal: to strengthen and network the German-speaking Bitcoin community - and to bring the Bitcoin phenomenon closer to as broad a mass as possible.

We accompany this project as one of the main sponsors in this blog and also make all podcast episodes available here as a video.

It starts a new chapter for the podcast "What Bitcoin brings." For the first time, Niko Jilch has recorded a mini-series with a guest. This guest is Rahim Taghizadegan, an economist, philosopher and Bitcoiner. He is an eminent representative of the Austrian School of Economics and head of the private educational institution Scholarium in Vienna.

Are you ready for a philosophical deep dive? Sit back and listen in!

Episode 1: "Innovation is first the challenge of spinners"

In this first episode, Niko and Rahim talk about basic ideas of the Austrian School, the parallels of Bitcoin ideology to gnosis, and the concept of order.

Episode 2: The eternal struggle for privilege

In the second episode, Niko and Rahim go back to the origins of socialism and the roots of Christianity. They talk about heresies and sects, about equality and violence. And of course, what all this has to do with Bitcoin!

Episode 3: "Bitcoin Emphasizes Savers' Sovereignty"

Are we actually living in capitalism or is there just a lot of conceptual confusion here? Niko Jilch and philisopher and economist Rahim Taghizadegan go into round three. After an overview of the history of ideas and a history of socialism, in this episode they tackle capitalism, the market economy and the state monetary system.

As a contrast to this, Bitcoin of course crops up again and again. As a technology - but also as an idea. "Bitcoin emphasizes the sovereignty of savers," Rahim says. "It gives us the ability to say 'no' to inflation, centralization and speculation. That's why it's also reshuffling the cards in the political, economic, and even philosophical debate.
