levy.eth | Mint Podcast @levychainMint Season 3 was a pivotal moment for the podcast. It was the first time I saw noticeable growth in my content. S3's most listened to episode featured @web3brett on music NFTs - the inspiration behind Season 4's iconic theme. I just minted our episode as 33 editions. 🧵
