  • The realness

    A real show, with real founders, doing real things. In an era of influencer hacks and spammy growth marketing b.s. it’s incredibly refreshing to listen to people discuss their experiences walking the only true path: the hard path.

  • Finally, a good podcast BY & FOR SaaS founders

    I didn't realize how difficult finding a good SaaS podcast would be. Most just cover theory or only want to talk about MRR/ARR. (Also, they ramble on for a long time) Here's a show with shorter episodes with a host who knows SaaS and asks the right questions while providing actionable value. A+ keep it up, Rob!

  • An amazing resource

    I have been listening to Startups for the Rest of Us for several years and am yet to find a more grounded and genuinely helpful podcast host than Rob. Thank you sir (and to Mike) for creating this amazing resource consistently, it is massively valuable and inspiring. I was a bit sad when Mike left but I enjoy listening to his updates in the checkin episodes and also hearing different voices and opinions on the podcast every week. The podcast has truly gone from strength to strength. Thank you.
