In the latest episode of Blockworks’ podcast “Empire,” Jason Yanowitz , co-founder of Blockworks, sits down with US Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) to talk about the proposed infrastructure bill and the negative effects the bill could have for bitcoin, digital assets and innovation.
This is a shorter episode than usual as Senator Lummis had less than 30 minutes to record between votes.
Senator Lummis and Jason talk about:
- Impact of inflation
- Increasing national debt
- Fiscal policy
- The infrastructure bill
- Knowledge of BTC in the Senate
- Regulation vs innovation

On “Empire,” once a week, Jason interviews individuals that have built the crypto industry to talk about their struggles, bold moves and tough decisions. For any NPR or Guy Raz fans out there, you can think of “Empire” like a “How I Built This” for the bitcoin and crypto industry.
Episodes are released every Thursday morning.
