Bootstrapping-related podcasts (updated for 2019)


Here’s our list of podcasts different folks recommend, refreshed for 2019:

Startups for the Rest of Us - From the people who run MicroConf. Consistently high quality. They somehow get an episode out every week, without fail.

Rogue Startups - Listen in on two guys having their weekly call discussing their bootstrapped startup challenges and successes.

Hurry Slowly - A podcast about how you can be more productive, creative, and resilient through the simple act of slowing down.

Tropical MBA - Great stuff if you’re interested in location independence/digital nomadism.

Build Your SaaS - Follow along as they get a SaaS off the ground.

Bootstrapped Web - Brian and Jordan share the lessons they “learn by doing, and learn from the things that others are doing, to help us all get ahead as we bootstrap our businesses online.”

Mixergy - Consensus seems to be that this is hit or miss for bootstrappers, but great interviewing

The Gently Mad - A podcast about meaning, disguised as a podcast about entrepreneurship. It’s a bright-eyed and sweary look at what it takes to make a living on the internet (and still sleep at night).

Fizzle - A podcast for creative entrepreneurs and honest business builders who want to earn a living doing something they care about.

Smart Passive Income - Weekly interviews, strategy, and advice for building your online business. Don’t be put off by the name - this podcast isn’t really about passive income.

What’s missing that you’d recommend?
