Purser Explores The World

Purser Explores The World is a journey of discovery fueled entirely by my curiosity.

For the first episode back I decided on a project called Faces of Addiction by Chris Arnade which focuses on the stories of people living with addiction in the New York neighbourhood of Hunts Point.

Just before we get into it, this episode deals with topics of a sexual nature, including sex work and fetishes, if this is not your cup of tea, then I recommend you don't listen.

I'll be honest, I'm not a great fan of economic theory. The world of the international currency exchange leaves me cold. However, the explosion of the cryptographic digital currency Bitcoin has caught not only my eye but that of the rest of the world.

Aimee Maree is an Open Source Architect and world citizen who's been involved with Bitcoin since 2010, while Richard Chirgwin is a science and technology journalist who's been reporting on Bitcoin for just as long.
