As an indie myself I loved hearing their stories and that I am not alone in my struggles. Thank you!
Great info for the indie or aspiring indie
I am an aspiring indie software engineer. The stories in this podcast help me learn what it really means to be an indie developer and what it will take for me to make the move into full indie development. I highly recomend it if you are an indie or even just curious about being and indie. Great work Alice, Curtis, and Daniel (Jelly).
