Oscar Merry is the co-founder and CEO of Fountain, and was actually the very first guest on this podcast back when it started in late 2021.
In our conversation, we covered Fountain’s evolution in the last year, the role of Nostr on Fountain, and of course the concepts of value for value and creator monetization in general.

This show is a Lightning podcast. That means instead of asking for likes or shares, I ask for sats.
The best way to show your support is to download Fountain from the App Store, load your wallet with some sats, and send them over the Lightning Network to email@example.com.
