Two guys carving out their path in the indie developer thicket

The hosts are great. Haven't had the pleasure of meeting them in real life yet, but they're open and honest in both their successes and failures, and you get to feel like you know them. It's been wonderful accompanying them through podcast as they cronicle the challenges they face.

A great show for all of us out there who are fighting to make our independent ambitions into a reality.

Keep up the great work, guys.

These guys are the best

As an independent designer and developer, this podcast features topics that resonate with me, inspire me and entertain me. I love that there is a community of like minded folks out there toiling away from their home offices and garages, and these guys deliver the stories week after week.

Highly recommend!
