I've been hanging around here less often lately, but I wanted to share a couple of happy stories with you, involving two awesome people I met through IndieHackers who I've collaborated with.
I ended up interviewing Chris for my podcast (it'll be released in December - I just knew I had to have him on), and purchasing one of Chris's tracks for my intro/outro music. He's a top guy, and is continuing to help/advise me on taking the podcast to the next level, moving beyond 'MVP' to a better-quality show. You can find out more about Chris and his work over here.
Ghost was the answer, and Dan helped me get up-and-running on a self-hosted site. I was a little nervous as all of this was unknown territory for me... Dan jumped on a call to answer my questions, and the transition from Substack -> Ghost + Discourse (self-hosted) was seamless. Gloat now even offers its own hosting.
I'm a big believer in things/people showing up at the right time, and Chris & Dan definitely did for me. Both top guys.
