It was my co-host Jose Rafael Peña make the latest questions and close the interview. Many things have happened, but the program has good receptivity and listening on different platforms, even on YouTube, which was a pleasant surprise for me,” said the producer.The dynamics of Consensus is developed with two interviewers. For Cazes your co-host is essential to the program since Peña focuses on points that may go unnoticed and that are also of interest to the audience. “Often you find the ‘weak points’ of the projects and asks the guests about it,” added the hostess.In connection with the episode that has marked Elena answered without hesitation that it was the Antonopoulos “for all that it represents for enthusiasts of bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies”.

Everything has been thought of her, who wanted Breaking News had a podcast, being such a fan of this format. The newspaper approved the proposal and immediately began to work on the tone of the interviews and the cutting of the program,” added co-host.Peña confessed that sometimes the interviewees may be a box of surprises, as you will be invited for a specific topic, but end up talking about philosophy, for example. This behavior relates to the world of cryptocurrencies is related to multiple aspects of life, the history of money, governments and the financial independence of the people.Now, for the second year of interviews, In Consensus will continue to stand by cater to the hispanic audience with his usual weekly episodes and guests of renown within the industry.
