NEW YORK (InsideBitcoins) — The rambunctious documentary maker who produced “Super Size Me” is taking on “the strange new world” of bitcoin in an upcoming episode of his Inside Man series on CNN.

The episode’s tagline is, “Can Morgan Spurlock survive for a week on Bitcoin? Go inside the strange new world of digital currency, Thursday at 9p ET/PT.”

The episode summary says, “Morgan lives off of nothing but the e-currency Bitcoin for a week to figure out whether the world is ready for a new kind of money. With all of the misinformation and misunderstanding surrounding bitcoin, Spurlock is determined to understand the pros and cons of the peer-to-peer digital currency and what its effect might be on the global economy.”

“Morgan promises, you will understand bitcoin by the end of this episode,” the promo voiceover says.

    I already live on bitcoin for about 90% of my purchases. One week is usually difficult because most things can be purchased online.

    Does withdrawing btc from an atm and using cash count?

    I’m guessing wouldn’t be too hard in some areas to live off btc. I assume he has a prepaid phone plan already with a data plan though.

    Can one man live on the greatest money to ever exist on the planet? Yes, he shouldn’t have an issue.
