Cas Piancey and I are very excited to launch our new long-form investigative show Innovated. This series will take a look at Blockchains LLC and Jeffrey Berns plan to build a blockchain enabled smart city in the desert. It’s a wild story involving brothels, lawsuits, sexual harassment, and company towns. We are truly thankful for Protos‘ help and support in making this a reality.

Find it on Protos.

We did a second interview with Dr. Ángela Vergara (from Episode 3) where we got to go even deeper into the concept of company towns. You can find that episode here:
