The Breakdown used to discuss news and events surrounding cryptocurrencies. Now, it focuses mainly on macroeconomic events. There’s plenty of podcasts covering macroeconomics. Stay in your lane. Leave macroeconomics to experts. Get back to cryptocurrencies.

Great to get a 50000 ft view.

Incredibly futuristic, what a good listen!
julyova via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/11/22
Love this podcast. In a world when so much is presented as right or wrong, black or white, my way or the wrong way, NLW presents a refreshingly nuanced perspective from a variety of sources. Love learning about the views of people across the political spectrum that I might not otherwise hear...Read full review »

I appreciate NLW’s thought provoking content in that it’s balanced and presents extensive background enabling the listener to learn and think about the broader “power shifts” driving the actions. It’s a must listen daily podcast for me and more than just crypto content. The macro and political...Read full review »

Like a lot of people I got into this because of their take on cryptocurrency markers, but stayed for the insight into the broader economy and how everything works together. The commentary is fast paced and has some editorial content (which I like). You can get data, news, and numbers anywhere,...Read full review »

The Breakdown with NLW is the best podcast. Incredibly high quality journalism and discourse on crypto and macro economics. Mainstream media could learn a thing or two from this guy across the board. I look forward to new episodes throughout the week. Keep up the fantastic work NLW and CoinDesk.

A pod on the Economy, Political/Financial Events ... and Crypto. Varied topics, interesting guests, even handed discussions. I don’t know how Nathaniel (NLW) finds his guests or conducts the in-depth research behind his insightful questions. On a daily basis he shows other “professional”...Read full review »

I very much enjoy the short format yet in-depth analysis provided by especially The Breakdown and The Hash. One thing I’m very much impressed with is I don’t feel like I’m being shilled some coin or promoted towards some particular company all the time.I love the microanalysis and macroanalysis....Read full review »

Incredible distillation of smart takes on the crypto news and changes in world power/ internet/ money. I don’t miss an episode.

One of the best if not the best crypto news program out there. Practical clear eyed reporting on the news of the day. Highly recommend for hard core or newb normie - this is one of the best ways to get a good sense of what’s happening in crypto. 5 stars!
East Village Radiohead via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/22
NLW - you are the man! Thanks for everything you do. You’ve helped me immensely, been listening everyday for 3 years. Thank you.
Damoooooooooooo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/12/22
I listen to The Breakdown every day. I cannot recommend this podcast enough for those interested in macro, crypto, and global issues affecting markets. Keep up the great work NLW! Much love. I gain so from listening to your show
C3d1M via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/09/22
After listening to this podcast for a year, I unfollowed today for two main reasons. Firstly this podcast has a very high ads to content ratio. A 15 minute episode can have 4 minutes of ads mixed into content. Secondly they seem to get their “facts” from Twitter, which often is more rumours and...Read full review »
elruts via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 04/28/22
I don’t often write podcast reviews but this podcast deserves it. There is SO much crypto info out there but this podcast consolidates it into one easily digestible clip every day. After listening to this podcast over time you will understand everything you need to know about crypto and it’s...Read full review »

Love this podcast but episode 935 is off base. Bring on some experienced foreign police experts if you’re going to dive into foreign policy. There were multiple inaccuracies and and grotesque under simplifications. Comparing sanctions to cancel culture? Come on. Exporting democratic ideas? Let’s...Read full review »

Been following you on a daily basis for 2 years, I always learn new stuff with you. The format, the flow of your voice, the way you explain stuff, the fact that you tend to be neutral on topics and explain both sides, the originality and different approach that you use in every episode keeps me...Read full review »

Nice bite-size daily updates. Keep em coming.
hoggy33 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 02/09/22
Daily listener. Podcast is great, NLW knows his stuff. A bitcoiner, but not a blind “we are going to a million next week” type of guy. High level and in-depth, but easy to understand for newbies as well. Started listening when I was new to bitcoin, have learned so much. Look forward to it...Read full review »

SOB is a terrible echo chamber. The Maximalist views are a turnoff to the regular episodes with NLW.
speachey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/22
Great daily podcast! Short enough to get the latest news! Highly recommend
Flukey70 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/22
Having no former knowledge in crypto assets this podcast has brought me further along than I may have ever, by picking up current literature and trying to catch up. The best part, political bias does seem to be muted and that is a huge plus for me. Update 2/18/2020 Everything I’ve written...Read full review »

NLW shares relevant news of the day, dips into new developments, and doesn’t forget the macro picture at large. He is always keen to identify possible correlations, share Multiple views from respected economists and devs that often run counter, and lastly, to cleanly give his thoughts; always...Read full review »

I listen to this show almost every day. I have a nightly routine: nightly bike ride while listening to this show. Great content and NLW is a great interviewer!
B. Moe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
Have you ever presented what you thought was a thoroughly-documented and definitive thesis only to discover that you had overlooked some key literature on the subject matter? This will never be the case with NLW, who also always will keep the many sides of any reporting well-balanced and in...Read full review »

Nathan ( NLW ) is so smart and informed - and he brings in AMAZING guests with so much intellectual horsepower and domain expertise - it makes for some quality listening - that will improve your understanding of the crypto landscape dramatically.

Best daily crypto podcast.
ggold via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/22
Stephanie Murphy’s tip on besting inflation are beyond insipid: “Buy land,” “Raise animals,” “Invest in my everything but crypto fund, “Get an education.” They’re the opinions of a spoonfed PhD who’s never actually suffered or been in a position of having absolutely no options. I’ve...Read full review »

NLW
This is in my top 3 for PodCasts for Economics and Crypto Macro information. Not only is NLW informative, he seeks to justify both sides of the street as he delivers with solid enthusiasm. I listen as often as it gets updated, & appreciate every time his neutral stance and deep thought on our...Read full review »

Crypto news when you need it. A good variety of crypto news from around the world that is inclusive to crypto. Great listen for the updates on the ups and downs, significant, and trivial crypto world.
Dvangsta via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/21
Keeps me updated that mainstream news doesn’t and helps me understand much more in the crypto world
Mia lives to run via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
Excellent digest of relevant news.

Plain and simple, my favorite podcast that’s helping me enter the wide world of crypto
Awrtvknjjhh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/21
Extremely well informed and digestible (appreciate that most daily episodes are ~ 15 mins).
Samlinsf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/21
This podcast is certainly focused on the crypto markets but NLW takes a much more holistic look at macro economics and the World events that are moving both crypto and traditional markets. This is not somebody who is pumping coins or telling you how to get rich but instead, gives a very high...Read full review »

As with all markets, you need a way to filter out the fear, uncertainty and doubt - this is a great podcast to do just that in crypto!
Hollywood Surrey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/23/21
As I continue to push and learn more, I’ve found that coming into this podcast as a somewhat of a noob that the acronyms were quite abundant and I’ve had to do a lot of research to figure out what the heck was being discussed. So perhaps just less acronyms.
Rip Taynus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21
NLW is a smart guy who knows how to set out a very interesting position. A trusted source of which there are very few in media today. NLW poses a position for the listener to judge and decide.
Bobcatbullets via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/14/21
I really enjoy listening to this podcast. Author seems pretty knowledgeable and covers topics with great details. Just an advise to keep noise away and focus on fundamentals and quality content, or that will ruin the show. Most listeners want to hear what changes are coming in the pipeline for...Read full review »

I liked the show but you didn’t cover the argument I made on Twitter on the energy council so I’m docking you 2 stars for the audacity, and because I think you’re wearing bitcoin goggles, but I get that it’s very politically/ideologically important to many. For bitcoin to become the global...Read full review »
Samtothemusic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/21
Here is an honest critique. I have listened to probably 20 episodes so far and I am usually listening to more long-form stuff like Peter Mcormack’s What Bitcoin Did, but this is becoming more of a better go-to for a quick update. NLW (and team) do a great job covering recent events and staying...Read full review »

I agree Elon using his influence..but what about Barry who invested in Coinbase? Not irresponsible or manipulative tweeting ?
drew212f via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/21
I discovered this podcast about a week ago and always get excited for the new ones to come out. This really is a great source of information that does not feel biased in anyway and I feel like it gives me all the information to stay up to date. I can’t wait for the daily episode and have...Read full review »

Eventually, we all work our way to that regular podcast for which we cannot wait to hear awesome takes in the crypto sphere. Nathaniel’s work is definitely that one for me. Regular, quick updates, awesome insights, and unquestionably the best intro music in the industry:) Keep up the great...Read full review »
