Great Interviews With Interesting People!

Just listened to episode 99 with Tim and loved it! He speaks so passionately about not only his brand, but just life in general. I literally got chills listing to this episode. And Joey lead the conversation amazingly and asked the right questions to get interesting and engaging responses. Would recommend this podcast to a friend for sure!
