The Best of All the 18 Minute Podcasts on Marketing, Management, and Meatloaf.

I’m putting this review since Ryan and Tim FINALLY mentioned me. Yes, yes, I am the Rylie mentioned in the podcast. But even though I’m probably going to be a teacher, I think their words on managing and marketing are good. Yet, the meatloaf is, probably, the best. My dad and Tim make me laugh, almost, every episode. 10/10, would recommend.

P.S. The meatloaf (that my dad mentioned in episode one) was actually really bad, since my mom did something wrong...
