Writing Books, Catholic Investing, Bitcoin vs. Ethereum | Devin Rose

I have a deep and varied conversation with Devin Rose, a Catholic author, blogger, and software engineer. We dive into topics like writing books, moral guidance for Catholic investors, and the debate between Bitcoin and Ethereum. Devin shares his personal journey from militant atheism to Catholicism, his experiences with homesteading, and his insights on investing in a way that aligns with Catholic values. Devin also talks about his various book projects, including his effort in fiction writing, and his "there and back again" story with Bitcoin.
