Show Notes

Oscar (the cofounder of the Fountain podcasting app) is back on for the 3rd time after a long break between our chats.In Conversation #81, Oscar and I discuss: all the new features in the 0.6 edition, strategic decisions he is making whilst building the app, the complexity of trying to integrate comments from across different platforms, ways in which the onboarding is becoming much easier, whether the 'value for value' model can work for a business and my hesitation to participate with advertising in any manner.As always, I hope you enjoy.

I have Volunteer Technologist on Buzzsprout too and I do splits by having my wallet on Fountain and claiming the show there. It isn’t ideal, but as soon as an episode is live I can go into it and add the split for my guest. Naturally, you can also do show level splits. I do wish there was an api to set the splits though so I could do it programmaticly

great interview!! In giving thought to Facebook/instagram - remember if you aren’t paying for the service than you ( your eyeballs ) are the payment. Twitter, Facebook, instagram, Google whatever only serves up content so that you view ads. it is literally that simple in my opinion.
Yep super important to remember that. Nothing in life is free
