Europe, here we come! We’ve got another podcast for you, and this one is for our lovely European readers. This is the TechCrunch Europe Podcast, wherein we European writers discuss tech news, as well as what’s happening in our startup scene.
This week, join Natasha Lomas, Steve O’Hear, and Romain Dillet (plus honorary Euro John Biggs) to comment on the Jolla phone, the Ask.fm debacle in the U.K. and the looming sales tax on Bitcoin in Germany.
Thanks to Ask.fm, we talk about the tough process of scaling a startup in Europe. We also wonder whether Bitcoin regulatory guidelines are coming soon to Europe. And MeeGo phones are back! Maybe.
We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcast every Thursday (except this first episode).
Intro music by Espanto.
