This podcast is a lie

This podcast is framed from the perspective of an OG in the Web 3 space, and is branded as associated with the Fame Lady NFT project. In reality the host’s best claim to fame is stealing the Fame Lady project from the community that loved it, and is forcing its branding and social media feed to do nothing but promote this podcast for the sole benefit of its host. The actual Fame Lady community would love to get its contract back but she refuses to do that as long as she feels she can milk it for the podcast’s credibility. Please reject this garbage to avoid harming a decent group of people who have already been greatly hurt by the host’s lack of decency or humility.
