Key Quotes in this Episode

“What makes a podcast the best? What if there’s a podcast that has less listeners but has 100,000 paid subscribers? Does that make it better or is it only based on downloads?” – Molly

“I create things as a way to connect with other human beings. There’s nothing wrong with creating something purely out of the desire to profit from it. But if I’m going to create this exclusive thing that only a small group of people get to hear, just for the sake of making money, it goes against what I think podcasting is all about.”
– Marcus
“The community’s got to be strong to make any one of these NFTs relevant, that’s kind of how a lot of it happens. That’s why these things blow up, not just because, but because there’s a momentum behind it”  – Adam
