On Tuesday Dwolla‘s founder and CEO Ben Milne appeared as a guest on the bi-weekly podcast This Week in Startups. Milne discussed everything from getting angry about credit card fees and splitting time among the startup’s offices—now in New York City, Des Moines and San Francisco—to the payment service’s involvement with Bitcoin. He also spoke with Jason Calacanis, the podcast’s host, about how Dwolla’s Midwest roots have helped the company grow. “The pro is definitely that Dwolla is unique in Iowa, and there are also a lot of really intelligent people in Iowa who decided to stay in Iowa,” Milne said. — Source: This Week in Startups
