I’m in a podcast — “Why Won’t Amy Castor Just Shut Up About QuadrigaCX!”

Screen Shot 2019-04-03 at 1.01.11 PM.pngYesterday, I did a podcast with CoinSpice’s C. Edward Kelso. He turned it around fast, and the podcast was live a few hours later.

Kelso asked me questions about collapsed Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX and also about legal threats made to me by WB21 (now Black Banx)—the third-party payment processor holding $9 million in Quadriga funds—after I wrote about them.

WB21 has a history of threatening reporters who write about them, so this was nothing new. But after so much bad press, WB21 rebranded, and I wrote about that, too.

It is always a little overwhelming talking about Quadriga. The story is so long, involved and complex that it really belongs in a Netflix series.

What was exciting was that this was my first podcast. I purchased the necessary equipment: a blue Yeti USB microphone (recommended by Jackson Palmer) and a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x professional studio monitor headphones.

Now that I have the necessary equipment, I’m ready for my next podcast!
