Show Notes

Today we have Reis Thebault on the show. Reis reports on the American West Coast from Los Angeles for The Washington Post. He joined The Post in 2018 and has covered national breaking news, European politics and D.C. city hall. He previously worked on the local desks of the Boston Globe and the Columbus Dispatch. We have him on the show today because he wrote a front page story on the Bitwise situation and has done some excellent reporting on the subject, interviewing both former Bitwise employees as well investors and local political figures. Most of all, he is an outside perspective, less clouded by personal connections or vested interests to look at the whole situation clearly.
