In this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s Fed Watch podcast, Christian Keroles and Ansel Lindner reminisce about the year on the podcast so far and cover recent developments from the major central banks of the world.

There have been so many great guests on Fed Watch this year so far that span a unique swath of bitcoin and macro. If you haven’t listened to these past episodes, subscribe and check out the back catalog. This year’s list of guests includes Max Kaiser, Nik Bhatia, Michael Lebowitz, Elliot Johnson, Mark Moss, Greg Foss, and Daniel Prince.

Fed Watch has established itself as the bitcoin podcast which goes past the surface arguments about the monetary system, uncovering uncomfortable topics and diving deeply into how bitcoin will reshape that system. The main part of this episode is summarizing central bank related news for the last month, particularly the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), the European Central Bank (ECB), and the Federal Reserve.
