A "must listen" for someone thinking of bootstrapping a software business

I am a software engineer by day for a large corporation but have been considering branching out in my nights and weekends into creating some of my own products. For someone in my boat, this is really the perfect podcast to listen to. Andrey and Ian are both hilarious, and I find myself laughing out loud several times each episode. But this isn't just about the entertainment, these guys really take you on a whirlwind tour of the ups and downs of trying to make it out on your own bootstrapping sotware.

Both Ian and Andrey have launched multiple successful products, and between them- they have knowledge of downloadable desktop software, SaaS apps, and mobile apps.

I have been devouring their backlog over the last few weeks and look forward to hearing what these guys do next.
