“Tony, THANK YOU! As a podcaster myself, I know the work that goest into a podcast is… not small. And I also know our podcast is not for everyone. But when I found yours I knew exactly who I needed to recommend it to — my husband, an indie game dev. It’s inspiring, value-driven, and has given my husband something content rich and motivating to listen to while working on releasing his first game!”
