I'm Courtland Allen, and on IndieHackers.com I've interviewed hundreds of developers about how they've turned their ideas and side projects into profitable online businesses. The Indie Hackers Podcast dives even deeper into the stories, challenges, and tactics behind the people who are bootstrapping and growing their own indie businesses.I talk to people like Mike Carson, the founder of Park.io, who makes over $1.5MM/month from his one-man operation. People like Christy Laurence, who got an app built from scratch despite not knowing how to code herself, grew revenue to $1MM in the first year, and who now employs dozens of people. I interview founders who are just getting started turning their brand new ideas into businesses, so we get an authentic glimpse at what the early days look like. I even bring on the occasional Silicon Valley tech founder, so we can see what it's like to raise millions of dollars from investors and move at breakneck speed.In every episode we discuss the highs and lows of a founder's journey, what it's like to risk it all and lose, and the amazing lifestyle changes that comes from hard-earned success. We dive into the fundamentals behind getting started, coming up with promising ideas, testing the market to see if they'll work, building an app or a website, finding your first customers, building a team (or staying solo), scaling up from a few hundred in revenue all the way to millions or hundreds of millions, and what to do once you've reached your goals.Whether you're currently running your own business or you're an aspiring entrepreneur who's just tinkering, on this show you'll learn by example how to become a financially independent indie hacker, and I guarantee you'll have fun doing it!

Inspiring stories!

The podcast is a great addition to Indie Hackers and, like any other part of it, very carefully crafted. I really enjoy listening to the founder stories during my runs and while there is a lot of specific advice on how to improve one's business, I'm tuning in mostly for hearing about other people's stories and getting inspiration from hearing about their humble beginnings :)

Courtland, you always ask for feedback, here's my take :) You are overall a great podcast host. I believe you haven't done any earlier so that makes it even more of an achievement. I feel like you tend to a bit too affirmative at times, agreeing and confirming when founders share their story. I think you could strive to be a bit more of a journalist who tries to dig deeper and questions things when people just share their own narrative of what ultimately made them successful (e.g. "what do you think, in which ways were you privileged?").

I think the most recent episode (with Joel from Buffer) is my favorite so far. I like how it was centered on the very early stages of the company (organizing time when there's freelance work on the side and about earning the first USD 20) and on the person. Asking about the way he grew up led to very personal discussions. For me, it was very interesting to hear about an introvert's path to leading a 70+ people company.

Keep it up and thank you for your work, Courtland!

Really good podcast

Skeptically tried it out on a friend’s recommendation and I’m honestly blown away at the quality of the interviews. The episodes are consistently good and informative. The interviews are also well edited and the technical quality of the recordings is high.

Finally, very impressed with the host’s ability to guide the conversation towards interesting topics but also with their ability to add insightful comments and good summaries of major points made by the guests. Well done.
