Although I’ve done 265 episodes of this show (well, more if you count any of my solo episodes), shockingly I’ve never done an episode on the history of money. As important as it is to discuss the management of money, it’s just as important to understand currency’s history. Especially as we enter this new age of currency with the rise of cryptocurrency.
Luckily, I was able to get Frederick Kaufman on the show, who authored The Money Plot: A History of Currency’s Power to Enchant, Control, and Manipulate, and is also a much distinguished English professor who has spent the last decade focused on researching the fiction that is money.
If you’re a money nerd and history buff like me, you’re going to love this episode and Frederick’s latest book!
