What's your favourite IH episode?

Hey everyone,

I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys listening to the IH podcast.

My favorite episode so far has to be the cookie one! 🍪 I think it's probably because it emphasizes how big the indie hackers space is. The community is by default, quite techy so we often seem to gravitate towards making a product for others like us. Listening to Sam talk about his family-run business helped open my eyes more ... and who doesn't like cookies?!

What's yours?

    Definitely the Jordan O'Connor one - love how he talks about how he spent 3 years in learning mode making no money and then figured out "the thing" and killed it.

      Maybe I’ll wait and listen to this for some Monday motivation ha!

      @csallen will we see more office hours in 2021? Thanks for the list btw - I have some listening to do ...

      1. 1

        Doubtful on office hours, unless I can find a more scalable way to do them

    I have to agree, the cookie one was so different and eye-opening.

  6. 2

    I really enjoyed Vincent Woo's and Sam Parr's most recent episodes. I liked that Vincent has had enough time to reflect and synthesize the whole experience of building and selling a business. And Sam was opinionated and direct in a way that I personally found fun.

    1. 1

      added both to my list!
