I started the Building an Indie Business Podcast to build a product in public by updating listeners on the progress of my projects.
The Open Podcast Community began out of a need for community. Many of the podcasting communities I found were not very active. At the same time a few listeners wanted to start their own podcast and wanted to ask me question about podcasting. I started to teach the members of the community as I was learning.
Before starting the podcast I created videos of the lessons I was working on to learn web development.
