MegaMaker - Excited about this


Here's a few things I'm excited about:


In the last 4 months, Transistor has grown by 2X: it used to be only two people (Jon and me), and we've recently doubled that to four full-time people (Jon, myself, Helen, and Jason).

It's amazing how much more we can tackle with a few people on the team. We're very close to launching dynamic audio insertion; a feature we've been dreaming about for years:

It allows you to record an audio clip, and automatically apply it (stitch it) to the beginning or end of every podcast episode you have (pre-roll, post-roll). Perfect for ads, announcements, or events.

Meeps is going to enable creators to make money in so many different ways.

Joshua Anderton has been building really cool stuff:

You can use it to start a membership site, a subscription business, get pre-sales for your product, build a community, start a paid newsletter, or monetize your Discord chat. See all the examples here.

That's what I've been working on!
