#4 — Not Getting Much Done

While Noah was on vacation, Ben was sick and there was not too much progress on either of their projects. However things are still up and running and users are actually finding their way and signing up nonetheless. Noah is wondering if Ben should really focus on building out the iOS and Android apps next or if there are better steps to take at this point. Noah talks about the current state of SnoozeYouLose and lack of motivation to really keep it running for long, before both jump into how they manage time when there is a lot to do.

#3 — 26 Hour Madness

The big livestream where Noah and his friend Drew built SnoozeYouLose happened and there is a lot to talk about. Not everything went down as planned but the overall outcome is very positive and there was a lot of fun in doing it. While Noah was super productive, Ben spent way too long on building small things and gets some good ideas for what to do next, talking about it with Noah.

#2 — Sending Narrowr Invites

Noah reveals what SnoozeYouLose is all about and that it will be built live on Twitch in just 24h. Noah and Ben talk about what technology will be used and what might or might not happen with the product after the initial launch. Ben got a new microphone and sounds a lot less like a caveman now! He also sent out the first 100 invite codes for Narrowr, got the first members using the product and bugreports start rolling in. Noah is looking for a new job on the side and of course the whole process asks for some discussion.

#1 — Starting the Journey

Noah and Ben kick things off by talking a bit about what they're currently working on and what's going on in their lives besides building online products. Ben goes into some of the details of building Narrowr, while Noah talks about his past product Coffeepass and what's in store for the future.
