Thanks a lot for subbing to my newsletter on indie startup news 😀
Big ups to Chris for sponsoring this newsletter!
If you’re an indie dev who prides themselves on great design and UX, having to trudge through multi-decade old products like Mailchimp is a painful experience. It’s slow, auto-saving is questionable at best and it’s full of features you’ll never use.
That’s why we built Loops. You deserve a simple, fast and easy to use tool to send email for your startup. We just finished YC and we’re excited to partner with a newsletter like High Signal full of other likeminded founders creating awesome products.
If you want to get an early peek at what we’re building and skip the waitlist, just shoot me an email and mention High Signal to get access earlier than everyone else. (ad)

Podcast of the Week 🎧
Big news with the IndieHackers podcast ending the interview format! It will now be Courtland and his brother Channing, talking back and forth. I'm happy to try this out and I think it will be worth a listen as they are both very interesting people. But I'm curious if people who are used to the interview format will stick around. You can listen to their episode here
