The podcast app that pays
- Aug 7: Our Editor wanted to try a music show to understand how it all works. Here's the show - listen on Podverse, Fountain or Podfans to support the artists.
- Jul 31: For the first time, money from listeners is shared directly with the music artists: listen on a compatible podcast player, like Podverse, Fountain or Podfans, and money is sent from your balance directly to the artist as you listen. Using Value4Value, the amounts are up to you; and you can "boost" songs to give more to the artists you like.

Popular Podcasting 2.0 app Fountain has seen an upgrade. It now supports transcripts (not just those using the
podcast:transcriptfeature, but will produce transcripts on-demand); supports the
liveItemtag; and works faster - with many other additions.
- May 19: The Podnews Weekly Review this week includes interviews with Mark Asquith of Captivate on the company's new monetisation tools, Oscar Merry of Fountain on the new version of the app, and Martin Mouritzen on the new version of Podfriend.
- Apr 3: In the Podcasting 2.0 "board meeting" this week (transcript), Dave Jones is ill (again?!), we learn that Fountain is the most-used app for boosts (except for live shows); and Adam's views on the Podcast Standards Project, who he sees as welcome "diplomats" in the attack on proprietary podcasting.
