A real show, with real founders, doing real things. In an era of influencer hacks and spammy growth marketing b.s. it’s incredibly refreshing to listen to people discuss their experiences walking the only true path: the hard path.

I didn't realize how difficult finding a good SaaS podcast would be. Most just cover theory or only want to talk about MRR/ARR. (Also, they ramble on for a long time) Here's a show with shorter episodes with a host who knows SaaS and asks the right questions while providing actionable...Read full review »

I just listened to episode 406, and I loved every minute of it! It was a great conversation. The mindset of a VC is different to that of a BA. A VC represents limited partners such as a bank, insurance, and pension funds and needs to be aggressive to produce the best returns to raise their next...Read full review »

BrianRhea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/21
As a software engineer helping other people start and run SaaS businesses, I’ve long felt I have what it takes to be successful at running one of my own, but truth be told, I’ve been scared, scared to fail, scared to look bad, scared to struggle my way to $2k a month and get stuck with something...Read full review »

Ever since Mike’s no longer on the show it just feels like The Rob Walling Show instead of startups for the rest of us.

I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast for a few years now, without running a SaaS. It’ll still take a while, but I know that after we’ve launched, I’ll think back on this podcast (together with Microconf) as providing the fundamentals for getting started. I really appreciate the mix between...Read full review »

Lyndsay_14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/20
As a start up founder this has been my favorite podcast for years. Rob and Mike have a genuine way of presenting information, and they are concerned with helping people, not becoming famous. After 10 years of showing up every day, they have left a great trail of actionable information for the...Read full review »

Unlike many in the bootstrapped software world, I haven’t listened to this podcast for years. I started fall 2019 after knowing who Rob is for years.

Mike and Rob, have been there and done that so these guys should be your number one step before you even register a company. I have gained so much knowledge from listening to their podcast.
Fuego Online via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/04/19
Following along with Rob and Mike through the past few years has been great. I’m especially enjoying lately following up with Mike’s story, as I’m in a similar place. I also love the new intro, the new types of episodes, etc. Keep up the good work guys! Thanks for putting these out there.

I started at episode 150 in February 2019, and just caught up to 453 (6 months later). Well worth the time! Anyone who is trying to turn their side project into a real thing should listen.
Stop_annoying_me via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/19
This has been a must listen since I found them before episode 300. A ton of practical advise with no holds barred when needed. It's a staple for me when it comes out and one of the very few to get an auto-download.Read full review »

I do not own my own SaaS, but I work for a small info product startup and this information is so valuable. I am able to see this information in practice and know that I will have a head start whenever the moment strikes for my own SaaS just from all the info Rob and Mike share.
wking-io via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/19
Somehow, I got a year past the launch of my project, without ever doing any research about what it takes to succeed. I thought all you needed were design and development chops but I was so wrong! Thank you Rob and Mike, you’ve helped me turn my ship around. 🙏
MatthewPanelJam via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/06/19
Podcast was recommend from the Indie Hackers forum. Listened to a few of your episodes including the ‘entering a mature market’ ep which was really insightful and helpful! Be cool, but care.
