Plus, last week's cliffhanger is answered...did Starr buy the printing press?

They also talk about physical fitness, joining a PTSA, and living their best fully-vaccinated lives.

Must listen for all indie/bootstrapped founders

By far the great podcast intro of all time. Also, the cover art. But the content is seriously great and appreciate these guys sharing so much about their journey and what they’ve learned along the way. It’s always a fun (and insightful) listen!
