In reference to testing out the Coldcard you don't have to use your own coins. Instead use testnet coins which Coldcard supports. You simply switch to testnet in the setting on the Coldcard. Testnet is a super underrated way to try things out without risking real coins. For the question about time stamping NFTs (or anything really) check out which is a long running project that is specifically created for the usecase of timestamping to the Bitcoin timechain.

Is there an Umbrel app or some other web app that one could use other than trawling bitcoin news to find out about major change proposals? I am enjoying getting into, and learning about bitcoin, but I am not always interested, or do not always have the time to follow up on all upcoming bitcoin changes. Thanks for the podcast, a great source of info. Keep up the great work. :)
