Episode 15: My Brand Is Built On Guilty Pleasures

Happy summer, America (and the rest of the world)! As we reflect on the choices our founding fathers made, we can’t help but think about the decisions our current administration is making. More importantly, the “alternative facts” that are being circulated out in the world. We talk how to combat that and find the truth, plus “guilty pleasures” aka how that isn’t a thing anymore, and summer travel.
