Crypto Talk Radio (formerly known as "Tales from the Crypto") is a program that covers various cryptocurrency news and projects from the lens of an investor. It started as a category under A Gentleman's World, but due to significant amounts of interest in the topic, it made sense to present it as a separate podcast. It currently has the highest number of listens across the ecosystem.
To support its expansion, the show was branded as Crypto Talk Radio, with Basic Cryptonomics being the first, main program on the show.
Put simply: imagine you had a friend who wasn't afraid to tell you what you needed to know, but had some serious credentials to support their arguments.
That's Basic Cryptonomics.
Main podcast: Every Tuesday and Thursday, except major holidays (we'll let you know in advance). Some content is exclusive to the main podcast due to relevance.
YouTube: No set schedule. Episodes are uploaded based on whatever appears to be currently searched for. Some content is exclusive to YouTube due to timing.
Episodes are generally published in the morning, but may be in the evening depending on other events. Distribution to all major platforms (i.e. Spotify, Apple Podcasts/iTunes, etc.) usually happens an hour or two afterwards; certain platforms may take up to 24 hours to display (Google Podcasts, for example). Podcast applications such as Podcast Guru may take anywhere between 1 to 8 hours to display new episodes depending on how you added the podcast.

Service Roadmap (click to view)
In 2022, the show began a complete rebrand to CTR: Crypto Talk Radio. The following are part of this rebrand:
✅ "LeicesterLife" will become a tagline (think "slogan"). This means it won't be part of the podcast name going forward, once all changes are completed.
✅ "Crypto Talk Radio" will become the official name of the show, with "Basic Cryptonomics" becoming the main program. This positions for additional programs in the future.
✅ The cover art was completely changed to support CTR and deprioritize "LeicesterLife". This also allows us flexibility for additional programming.
✅ Creation of the website you're viewing now, which will replace the Linktree as the primary source of information. The Linktree (@cryptotalkradio) will remain in place as a backup.
✅ Crypto Talk Radio has adopted a formal color scheme for its brand unique to it versus the other programs.
✅ Crypto Talk Radio has introduced, and completed, its first advertising. This brings in revenue for the show to support quality programming and lets us build a model for advertising that doesn't ruin the experience for listeners (you probably didn't even know you were listening to an ad. That's the point.)
🔘 The show will migrate from its current host, Substack, over to Anchor.FM. (This is the final step in the process.)
🔘 The show will have a "supporter" feature, that allows listeners to support the show. This is part of a tiered support structure.
🔘 The show will allow subscriptions, which will allow listeners to receive notifications and updates about the show. This is expected to be hosted on Substack (subject to change).
🔘 We will be doing an outreach campaign to find token projects that "want the smoke" and come on the show to talk to us.
🔘 We are in negotiations for other larger partnerships to provide advertising revenue. We have informal partnerships by way of referrals. These new ones would be direct partnerships.
