Sometimes it’s hard to judge a person by what you read about them in the press. And with Patrick Byrne, the controversial CEO of Overstock.com, it’s especially hard, because he has a lot of haters. In episode 8 of the Wall & Broadcast, we try to cut through the noise and get to the heart of what drives Patrick Byrne. He’s on a quest to remake Wall Street. Why? Because he’s been burned by Wall Street in the past, and much like Charlie Shrem from Episodes 5 and 6 of our podcast, he believes in the power of the blockchain to solve what he sees as Wall Street’s problems. Join us to hear Patrick speak for himself so you can decide for yourself whether or not he’s just crazy.
