During this session, you will hear:

    Heard part of this driving around last night http://onpoint.wbur.org/2014/05/06/bitcoin-dark-money-dark-wallet and mentioned the evolution of bitcoin and how soon we would have to embrace it if our clients started using bitcoins (theoretically), when members of the lunch party mentioned seeing an episode of "the Good Wife" dealing with Silk Road, and another mentioned it appearing on another weekly drama.
