Adam Curry Defined MTV, Invented Podcasting, And Found God | The Show

Adam Curry first became a household name as an MTV VJ, but that was only the start of his nearly four-decade crusade to revolutionize media. Since childhood, he has been obsessed with using cutting-edge technology to improve the ways that humans communicate ideas, from building MTV’s first website to bringing Bitcoin micropayment to podcasting.

Adam’s career has always been about pushing boundaries, in more ways than one. He’s known for exploring some of the wildest conspiracy theories on his popular podcast “No Agenda,” but recently he’s been diving into a new theory - faith in God. Adam’s recent turn towards Christianity has brought a profound layer to his already rich tapestry of experiences. Join me as I unravel the fascinating intersections of media, innovation, and faith in my conversation with Adam Curry.
