Episode details

Bitcoin is legal tender in El Salvador. And it's ok to talk about COVID's possible lab-based origin.

The world is changing. And Paul and Scott are helping you navigate the absurdity.

In this episode of Mentally Unscripted, Paul and Scott talk about the COVID Wuhan lab theory.

Then they move on to Bitcoin's take over of the world economy. And it starts in El Salvador. Ok, maybe not. Does it matter that El Salvador made Bitcoin legal tender? Listen to this episode to find out.
