[3:16] “President Joe Biden has presented an executive order […] that asks various government organizations to produce reports on Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology. This development signals that the United States government is officially recognizing the importance of this technology and the industry that it has spawned. While many people have been anticipating an abrasive government approach towards bitcoin and cryptocurrency for years, the current administration seems to be doing the exact opposite. They're looking to embrace this new technology and the potential positive impacts that it can have.”

Selected Quote:

[5:12] “It's maybe worth contextualizing why this is not a local problem for just Russia and Ukraine, why this war is truly a global war. If you think of the importance of the Black Sea region as a whole, Russia and Ukraine combined today produce 14% of global wheat.

Selected Quote:

[8:19] “This idea of […] the 15 minute delivery window is […] an invented need. There wasn't […] a period before this, where I was like, […] I would love to order through Instacart, but the fact that it's not getting to me in 15 minutes just completely makes the service useless. And our […] attention and our patience for delivery, apparently keeps getting shorter as far as these companies are concerned. I mean, we used to order stuff on Amazon, and it took a week […] and then it gotta be two days with Prime and then it was […] later in the day with Instacart.
