Growing up in Australia, Coin Desk’s Chief Content Officer Michael Casey thought it would be cool to be in a band. While that didn’t pan out in the way he might have thought, he did end up as a rockstar of sorts among the legions of bitcoin and crypto currency followers after spearheading the Wall Street Journal's coverage of the nascent currency. On this episode of Press Profiles, Michael talks about the ups and downs of covering Bitcoin and the crypto markets, CoinDesk's award winning coverage of the FTX scandal, how some boring bus rides with an accountant sent him down the road toward journalism, living on five different continents, working as a “pie topper”, and we even play a few bars of a raucous Australian Rules Football team's theme song. Enjoy.
