About Indie Maker Journey podcast

We're Alan Bradburne, a developer living in Japan, and Mario Rodriguez, a developer in the US. We met online via MicroConf and became part of a mastermind group. Eventually it was just the two of us meeting every other week. We decided to continue on and record our meetings to turn them into this podcast. Our goal is to simply share our story, the struggles, successes, failures, hopes, and aspirations while building our own indie software products. We hope that it will be useful in some way to other indie makers like yourself.

We hope to capture our conversations in the most natural way possible. One of our goals is also to do as little editing as possible (only where absolutely necessary). Partly because it takes so darn long to edit! But also because we want to capture and share our raw discussions of various subjects related to software development, marketing, self-funding, and indie making in general. We think it's most useful this way.

Hi! I'm Mario, and I'm your co-host.

I'm a software engineer and indie maker in the US. I've been writing code since the late 80's and building things online since the early days of the web. These days I build things using primarily the wonderful Laravel framework, MySQL, Vue.js, Inertia.js, JavaScript, TailwindCSS, Jekyll, Statamic, and many other tools. I'm the creator and founder of Fusioncast.fm, a browser-based podcast recording platform that allows you to easily connect and record high-quality audio and video with your remote guests or co-hosts.
