Quotes from the episode:

“If you go to our explorer, you can see that the network has done about 32 million blocks at this point and over 3 billion transactions. And the reason why we have 3 billion transactions already is because our smart contracts is so cheap and fast that we use it as the message bus for consensus.” [00:01:59]

“We don't have a limit on how big a block can be. There's a block every 400 milliseconds, and it isn't so much that there's a separate block. It's almost like a continuous chain.” [00:06:48]

“The hard part is obviously that [because] it is blockchain, everything has to be harder, right?” [00:25:52]
