3. The Top - SaaS Interviews with CEOs, Startups, Founders 

Host 

Nathan Latka

About the podcast

Every day, SaaS entrepreneur and investor Nathan Latka interviews SaaS founders for 15 minutes to discover the ins and outs behind growing a SaaS. From bootstrapped to venture-backed businesses, Nathan asks hard-hitting questions on revenue and growth. This podcast is a handy resource for anyone involved in growing a SaaS business and who wants to hear about the growth numbers of emerging SaaS companies.

Why we love it

Nathan doesn't kid around. Placing founders in the hot seat, Nathan asks straightforward questions about the company's growth, trajectory, and sometimes even income reports. If something does not seem right, he's quick to call that out. While this can often leave interviewees flustered and at times even retracting back on their previous statement, it brings vital insights on what it takes to grow a SaaS business.

4. Indie Hackers

Host 

Courtland Allen

About the podcast

The official Indie Hackers podcast interviews bootstrappers and founders who are growing their online business and living the indie hacking lifestyle. This is one of the most popular podcasts out there for scrappy SaaS and other online bootstrappers, and for good reason. Episodes range from being packed with tactics on growth, such as the interview with Julian Shapiro of BellCurve, to aspirational, including the time when Rand Fishkin of Moz and SparkToro was $500,000 in debt.

Why we love it

This podcast offers a fresh take on what it takes to build an online business. Many of the indie hackers interviewed are scrappy bootstrappers who don't follow the Silicon Valley dogma of growth at all costs. At the same time, Courtland has an effortless conversational style that makes his interviews very easy to listen to.
