Episode details

This week I’m joined by the Stuart Bowman, creator of Satellite, a social network that puts decentralization and data ownership at the heart of its code.

Satellite is mind-bogglingly good. Simply put: it’s the answer to the Facebook problem—you know the one I mean. Built on the blockchain, Satellite prioritises authenticity, diversity and privacy, with an algorithm specially coded against echo-chambers.

I’m a Satellite convert since recording this interview a few weeks ago. To prove it, I’ve uploaded the video of this podcast episode to Satellite only. Watch my jaw drop 100 times during this conversation here. You can also listen to the episode Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Sign up to Satellite here. Be quick about it and you might still be able to claim your first name as your username (unless your name is Rachel; that ship has obviously sailed).
