#96: Robert Breedlove (@Breedlove22) - Building the Best Version of Yourself
The Meat Mafia Podcast
Robert Breedlove is a Freedom Maximalist who has contributed to bitcoin through his writings, and educational podcasts via the “What is Money?” podcast. He’s had a profound effect in helping people understand the importance of sound money in society throughout history. He did an amazing podcast series called the “Saylor Series” with Michael Saylor, the former CEO of Microstrategy. Besides his work on Bitcoin, Robert founded a hedge fund and previously worked as an accountant and CFO. He also has a powerlifting background and has eaten a carnivore diet for years now to help him cure some health problems. If you haven’t heard Robert speak, he’s an incredibly deep thinker and philosophical person, and the insights into his life he shared during our conversation with him were profound. 🚨SPONSORS🚨The Carnivore Bar: The Carnivore Bar is a delicious, 3-ingredient bar that will fuel you with the highest quality animal-protein possible. Each bar only has 3-ingredients (Beef, Tallow, Salt) and has a creamy yet crunchy texture. The Carnivore Bars are grass-fed / grass-finished and will truly make "staying on the path" easier when traveling.✅LINK: https://carnivorebar.com/ CODE: MAFIA (10%)✅Equip Foods: Use the code “MEATMAFIA” at check out to save 15% on your order.The protein powder & supplement industry is riddled with products that aren’t sourced from high-quality sources or contain ingredients and fillers that you don’t want in your protein powder or body. Equip provides a clean, beef-sourced protein and even has a product that’s a single ingredient, beef protein. If you’re a purist like us, eating real foods is the only way to maximize your health. Equip ensures that if you don’t have access to freshly cooked food after a workout, you can at least opt for a high-quality protein powder.Holy Cow Beef: Labeling laws have made it challenging to know exactly how your beef was raised. “Grass-fed” does not mean what it used to and since the laws permit for grain-fed beef to still be considered grass-fed, you really need to look for the AGA (American Grassfed Association) label to ensure you’re getting the highest quality beef. Holy Cow Beef, owned by Ann and Weldon Warren, embodies the highest standards of animal husbandry and truly believes in the importance of creating the highest quality product for the end consumer. Check out their website for meat boxes and delivery options!Wrich Ranches: If you’re in Colorado and want the highest quality grass-fed, grass-finished, regeneratively raised beef in the state, go check out Wrich Ranches. He takes bitcoin (and will give you a hard time if you don’t know what bitcoin is)!BRAND AFFILIATESLMNT Electrolyte Drink Mix: LMNT is loaded with the necessary electrolytes without the sugar.

Robert Breedlove: 'Just Follow the Energy' on Bitcoin, Not the Price
The Reason Interview With Nick Gillespie
Bitcoin is trading under $23,000 as I write this, which means the value of the world's biggest cryptocurrency has lost about $45,000 per coin since last November, when it was at about $68,000.Though the recent slide in the price of bitcoin has sent many speculators scrambling back to fiat currency, it's done nothing to cool the fervor of Robert Breedlove, a self-proclaimed freedom maximalist whose Twitter feed is filled with encomia for the inflation-proof monetary system that has a supply fixed via the consensus of a decentralized, global software network."Unlike the US Constitution," he writes, "#Bitcoin cannot be amended—that's why incorruptible money is a greater instrument of freedom than the US Constitution." "#Bitcoin," he predicts, "will prove to be history's ultimate example of the old adage 'when you can't beat them, join them.'"The 36-year-old former hedge fund manager and accountant by training is a leading thinker and writer in the bitcoin space, where he publishes The Freedom Analects and hosts The "What is Money?" Show podcast and video series.I talked with Breedlove at the Bitcoin 2022 conference in Miami this April about why bitcoin is the best hedge against hyperinflation, how Austrian economics informs his worldview, and why he believes bitcoin will inevitably become the basis of the global economy. "No one's figured out how to stop bitcoin, basically meaning turn it off," he says. "And so, if you can't turn it off, that effectively operates as this vortex of incentives. It's just incentivizing people to interact with it, to hold it, to save and build businesses on it."The months between our conversation and today have not been kind to bitcoin, but Breedlove remains a stalwart defender, tweeting recently that "instead of focusing on price, just follow the energy," and pointing to a chart showing that bitcoin's hash rate—a measure of the total computational power being used on the network and thus a proxy for its health—has gone upward despite the price declines.Today's sponsor: The Reason Speakeasy is a monthly, unscripted conversation in New York City with outspoken defenders of free thinking and heterodoxy in an age of cancel culture and thought police. On Monday, June 20, Nick Gillespie talks with legendary graphic designer Steven Heller and Reason Senior Editor Brian Doherty about the latter's new book, Dirty Pictures: How an Underground Network of Nerds, Feminists, Misfits, Geniuses, Bikers, Potheads, Printers, Intellectuals, and Art School Rebels Revolutionized Art and Invented Comix. The event takes place at Caveat, a bar and theater on the Lower East Side. Doors open at 6 p.m., program begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $10 and must be purchased ahead of time online. Details here.
