Great Knowledge

Both Ian and Andrey are experience startup founders, both have had major blows and successes in their career. You can learn alot listening to them. Just note, Andrey is the hyper one so expect him to talk alot more than Ian Landsman.

Awesome show for bootstrap software

If you are looking to get away from words like "lean", "agile", and "venture capital" as a software company creator, this is the show for you. Just enough light material to keep it moving, but a ton of helpful advice!

Entertaining resource of the business side of programming

This show is hosted by two programmers that have self-funded their individual businesses.

Ian Landsman has embraced the business aspect of his company. The success of his helpdesk software has afforded him the opportunity to launch a new product.

Andrey Butov has created many apps over the years. All of these apps combined, is what led to his self-deprecating, although humorous, form of success.

They both talk about their family lives and how it pertains to their work. Their wives have been instrumental in their success and credit is given often.

I feel this show an excellent mix of business, programming, entertainment and the occasional rant. An example of an epic rant is in episode six, Authorize This. Having dealt with and merchant accounts, I felt the pain. They are amazingly good at describing things where common sense should prevail but doesn't.
