Indie partners

Because the indie world is full of amazingly supportive people, tv/radio hosts, podcasters, bloggers, youtubers, social media supporters, I felt that they deserved a page on my site. Here is a list (by no means exhaustive and perhaps slightly biased by my own interactions and taste) in alphabetical order.

I consider them partners, because the indie world can only work when it's a two way street: they support us, we need to support them in return... 

So here's the list of some that I know of, to have interacted with them online one way or another, I'm sure there are many others, so expect this list to grow with time as I get to meet more...
