What We’re Chatting About This Week
Hey everyone, can you believe we're almost at the 100th episode mark? I should do something special… what do you think?
In this episode, I interview my long-lost brother… just kidding, but close enough! We both have two daughters, we're both private pilots, we're both Jewish, and we both make our livings as full-time freelance bloggers!
This episode was really fun to record, not only because we're so similar, but also because Jason is an expert on credit cards and travel hacking. Jason actually helped my then-girlfriend (now wife) and me get round-trip tickets to Israel for $150, per person. He's good! We'll cover travel hacking and so much more in this episode – take a listen!
