    Intermission: The Road to the Yo! Podcast

    Intermission: The Road to the Yo! Podcast

    Yo friends, I was a bit torn where to put this audio recording of my recent Indie Hackers talk but all roads naturally lead here. If you're not interested in my story leading to the Yo! Podcast then I'll catch you in the next episode with Dann Petty. For the rest of you, I hope you enjoy a very casual chat sharing my first romances with computers, multiple failing side projects, monetizing One Page Love, shaving my eyebrow, the greatest month of my life designing the Yo! show for YouTube and I end the Podcast with a track from a band I used to play - hope you enjoy the talk:)
