In this episode, we hang out with Bram Cohen, the inventor of BitTorrent, to discuss the origins of BitTorrent in the Mojo Nation project, why BitTorrent is still relevant given our increasingly low-cost bandwidth environment, how Big Content could have competed with Free, but chose not to - and the bumpy last years at Bram's company BitTorrent Inc., including a near-death foray into content licensing and production. And for those of you following cryptocurrencies: stop the press - Bram is starting his own bitcoin competitor.
