What people are saying

Amazing guests + smart questions

Unchained is my favorite crypto podcast because Laura’s journalistic approach cuts through the hype. She isn’t afraid to ask billionaires hard questions – a refreshing quality in such a bullish space!


Authoritative & Reliable

I listen to about a dozen podcasts – none more journalisticlly (in the old-fashioned, quality sense of the word) sound than Laura’s. She is a Rock of Gibraltar in the killer seas of crypto.
