A weekly podcast by two indie hackers, Marc and Matt. They share their ups and downs of building their bootstrapped online businesses. They prefer to show instead of teach, so you get to see the real story about what it's like to “startup to something” - raw and unpolished.
82: Build in private
Marc was a part of the recent Webflow marketplace launch, but the rush burned him out. Matt is getting inspired by AI businesses showing up in his facebook feed and contemplating an offer to be a technical cofounder. The guys discuss how to come back from burnout and moving away from building in public.
81: How you define work
Matt is drinking port and finally offloading the operations of his business. Marc is drinking rum and coke and is questioning if the job of marketing that he dislikes so much is serving him. The guys discuss the definition of work and AI powered products.
80: Profitable bug fixes
Matt is in Portugal slacking off. Marc has found and fixed a very profitable bug in PowerImporter. The guys discuss foreign transactions and the best ways to retain revenue when moving between currencies.
79: Haters gonna hate—lifestyle businesses unite!
Marc has been working on a new WordPress importer. Matt is about to head to Portugal. The guys discuss the shift in popular media away from creating lifestyle businesses, and how the lifestyle is the reason they both began indie hacking.
78: The business of podcasting
Matt is back after vacation/sickness and is working on cultivating Matt Time. Marc is feeling filled with podcast related business ideas after taking over editing this podcast for a few weeks. The guys talk through Marc's business ideas and evaluate their potential.
