The Nouns Terminal with Hab & W1nt3r
Episode Details

Today I sit down with Hab and W1nt3r. This dev and designer pair won a Prop House round and shipped an alternative frontend to the Nouns auction site that they dubbed the Nouns Terminal. We chat about what it’s like working in crypto vs. big tech, their love for generative art, why the details matter, and what we can expect from them in the future.

Noun O' Talk is the podcast all about NounsDAO. The host, Christian, interviews members of the DAO and project builders in the ecosystem. We hear about how they came to Nouns, what they're working on, and what they see for the future of Nouns. You can listen to past episodes at The cover art is by Messhup of Nounsense and the Lost Nouns team is cdt_eth, 12bnoun, and Messhup.
