The Art of Product is a podcast chronicling the journeys of two entrepreneurs building software companies. Hosted by Ben Orenstein and Derrick Reimer.
171: Humans Have A Lot of Drawbacks
Ben and Derrick discuss hiring support engineers and philosophies around customer support in general. They go deep on the topic of investing in your business, diversification, and allocating assets.
170: Beautifully, Wonderfully Dissatisfied Customers
The Tuple team is close to shipping true 3-player mode without host & observer role limitations. Derrick launched the Outlook integration this week and is working on a bunch of smaller tasks that have been accruing the past month.
169: The Startup Rollercoaster
Ben & Derrick chat about dealing with ups & downs in business, finding enough, decoupling fulfillment from business metrics, knowledge archival, dealing with feature requests, and slew of other topics.
168: I'd Rather Commit Sins of Overambition
Ben & Derrick brainstorm a "rooms" feature for Tuple. Derrick is getting close to wrapping up the SavvyCal Outlook integration. Ben shares highlights from their latest team retreat and teases some new plans for later this year.
167: Crossing $10k
SavvyCal crossed an important SaaS milestone this week. Ben is continuing to delegate more responsibilities to his team and redefine his role with the company. The guys talk about Gumroad's recent crowdfunding and Derrick's recent experience with Stripe Capital.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to discover this podcast. Once I found it, I binged so many episodes in the first week. Insanely actionable podcast for anyone building or growing a SaaS company. 👍👍
This is the only podcast I listen to at 1x speed.
An Awesome Look at Building a Product
I've really enjoyed following along as Ben and Derrick work on projects/businesses. Lots of value in this podcast, I'd say its a bit of a hidden gem in the bootstrapping world! Great work guys!
