Our new podcast, Open Source Underdogs, is now LIVE!

Michael Schwartz November 7, 2018

Starting a software business is hard.

Starting an open source software business is a whole other ball game!

But if you dream it, you can achieve it.

And we want to help you understand how.

That’s why we started a new podcast series, called Open Source Underdogs, to demystify how entrepreneurs fund and grow open source software companies.

The first 9 episodes — now available on our website and popular apps like Apple Podcasts, Google PodcastsSpotify, and Stitcher! — feature interviews with open source legends like:

  • Mike Olson, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Cloudera
  • Matt Mullenweg, Founder of WordPress and Automattic
  • Eliot Horowitz, Founder and CTO at MongoDB
  • Michael Howard, CEO at MariaDB
  • Peter Wang, Founder and CTO at Anaconda
  • and more!

Listen to them all on

If you are interested to learn how people build these crazy businesses that give away their software for free, and how you too might built a business around open source software, we hope this podcast provides a valuable resource.

Please help us share these stories by telling your friends and leaving a five-star review wherever you listen to podcasts.

And of course, don’t forget to subscribe to Open Source Underdogs on your favorite podcast app — we have more great episodes on the way!
