Awesome podcast

Britstrapped is right up my alley as it focuses on UK bootstrapping startups. There is a huge ‘funded’ startup scene in London but there is not much in the UK about bootstrapping. Happy to have found this podcast. I enjoy listening to Martin and Nick. Keeping rocking gents!

Really enjoy listening to Bristrapped

Bootstrapping is a journey and I've found it helpful following Martin and Nick's progress. This includes the useful tips they provide on their weekly roundup. It's also not just for Brits! Keep up the great work Martin and Nick!

“I’ll sing the blues if I want!"

The Britstrapped podcast particularly resonated with me as Nick and Martin discuss similar queries and struggles that I myself am going through on the journey to having a self-funded product business. "Should I try this marketing channel?" "How do I balance freelancing work?" "How to avoid shiny new object syndrome."

I listen to almost exclusively North American podcasts so it’s great to have something from this side of the pond. Also the fact that they haven’t yet “made it” (i.e. are making enough money solely from their products to live off), makes me particularly empathise.

Production "polish" is improving with every episode, I like the more focussed 30 minute duration and you seriously have to keep the Oasis Whatever intro riff!

Keep up the great work lads.
