The ARCC Report

THE ARCC REPORT is a podcast featuring stories about The International Blockchain Monetary Reserve’s mission to break the cycle of poverty, exploitation and wealth disparity in emerging markets through the decentralized network effects of blockchain technology. Throughout this podcast series, we're going to be discussing topics like inequality, social justice and financial inclusion--items that may not make the front page, but are certainly top of mind for us, and that we think you might find interesting as well. But more importantly, we're going to be discussing what you and I can do to help create change. We're going to share our personal stories as it relates to our own social impact project, currently underway in Southeast Asia. This podcast is hosted by Eric Tao and features IBMR’s Managing Director, Sinjin David Jung. To learn more please visit IBMR.io

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
