Jamie Bartlett (REPLAY): The World’s Biggest Crypto Con

This is a replay episode with Jamie Bartlett recorded back in 2019, he is the bestselling author of multiple books including The Dark Net and People vs Tech. In this episode we are discussing his podcast The Missing Cryptoqueen, a BBC Sounds podcast described by The Telegraph as ‘the most gripping podcast since Serial’: the podcast uncovers the mysterious story of Dr Ruja Ignatova who persuaded millions to join her financial revolution, a new cryptocurrency called One Coin that turned out to be a scam. Jamie Bartlett and Georgia Catt made the podcast trying to track her down and present a story of greed, deceit and herd madness. Definitely go and listen if you haven't already - and excitingly, Jamie recently revealed that he has written a book too called The Missing Cryptoqueen and it’s been released in June 2022, one to order now! Hope you enjoy listening to this.
