Show Notes

I talk with Oscar Merry, co-founder of Fountain, one of the most popular Podcasting 2.0 apps.

We talk about the future of open podcasting and breaking out from the walled gardens of big tech, how the Bitcoin Lightning Network can enable streaming value directly to content creators, and we also discuss some of the upcoming features that the Fountain team are working on.

Fountain has been a big part of the journey of this show, with many of you supporting my work from the beginning by streaming satoshis and commenting on episodes which gave me a lot of encouragement to keep doing the proof of work.
