This is a long form conversation and is not your average crypto interview...
Ryan X Charles - Full Uncut Interview - Part 1
Ryan X Charles - Full Uncut Interview - Part 2

For my 40th birthday, I celebrated by doing something I love, and I love good interviews. I love asking questions. I love conversations that take me out of my comfort zone and help me get a fresh perspective. I've spent my life working in the creative intersection of art and technology and so I love talking about the creative process and different ways to approach content and the forms it takes. Roy Two Thousand and I are really excited about YOURS because the form it takes could influence an entire new phase of creative development and artistic growth as well as "leverage technology to create freedom." :)
So I interviewed Ryan X Charles for my birthday, and this is the full uncut interview in 2 parts - all hour and forty minutes of it.
The interview is will be part of our podcast and web series, titled Universal Life Theory, launching soon. I won't be appearing the short video segments - just the podcast - so that's why you see a photo of me when I'm speaking.
Over the past month on YOURS, I've seen posts and comment threads where I wished I could just link to a section in our conversation. So Roy Two Thousand and I decided to go ahead and process an uncut version and post it for the YOURS community - as well as anyone else.
Besides learning more about YOURS and engaging with the process, one of my goals with the interview was to create a learning tool for people new to, or outside of, the crypto community while also looking forward and talking about what the future might hold.
Hope you find this as interesting as we did.
Thanks for watching!
-Crystal + Roy Two Thousand

Cool interview, too bad that the interviewer steps in a bit too much, so its more like a conversation.

Well done interview! (Just halfway through the first one.) Just for the record, I think that the interviews were fantastic at 2x speed, for which I needed a chrome plugin (specific to vimeo).

just finished the whole interview. definitely worth the time i spent listening. i've enjoyed some of ryan's other vids but this one went into a lot more detail and gave more insights into where Yours might be headed. highly recommend others to watch. and not to sound like too much of a fanboy, but i want to add that of all the various BCH talking heads, Ryan is my favorite. he does such a good job of coming across as both knowledgeable and passionate without being abrasive or incomprehensible. thanks for uploading!

I hope you don't mind but I will probably end up ripping this to an mp3 to finish this out, really good so far, glad it is longer and it will take me more than one sitting to get through. Great in depth answers and thoughts Ryan! I check out many things in the crypto space all the time and enjoying seeing the growth on Yours. Thanks Crystal and @roy2k for doing this and sharing it in long form.

Great stuff, new user here (as of an hour ago or so). I liked it all up until around 20 minutes into part 2 when Ryan started describing the current business model and I had to scratch my head a bit. 5% of anything doesn't fit the model and spirit of the idea of yours.org as I understand it. Why not eat your own dogfood, so to speak, and let users pay you directly?
I think you'd gain a number of things by pursuing this instead of going the route of the antiquated paradigm:
1) You practice what you preach
2) Which helps you better understand and connect with your userbase
3) Which enables and encourages you to build new features that your userbase demands (and gives earlier feedback about that which they do not demand - very important in a startup environment)
4) Potentially opens the door to expand your current idea from strictly rewarding content providers but also rewarding service providers, once you get to the point of having a developer platform and api, which would re-inforce both #2 & #3
Perhaps you've considered some or all of this already, but I have to say the inconsistency was a bit surprising to me. And confusing. Anyway, interested to see how things progress for you.
