Isolation with Courtland Allen and Anurag Goel

We are all living in social isolation due to the quarantine from COVID-19. Isolation is changing our habits and our moods, ravaging the economy, and changing how we work. One positive change is that more people have been reconnecting with their friends and family over frequent calls and video chats.

Isolation is not a normal way for humans to live. We are social animals, and we need social interaction. We’ve changed how we use Internet products. There has been an evolution of trends in online shopping, social networking, and video communication software.

Courtland Allen is the founder of Indie Hackers and Anurag Goel is the founder of Render, a new cloud provider. Both Courtland and Anurag are friends of mine, and join this episode to talk about how their lives are changing as a result of social isolation.
