#51: Trap House (feat. Ivan Narez)

Sometimes I talk to myself. 

This time I ramble nonsense inside my new office (a former grow room) about messing up a podcast with Jon Julio, donating to Schmidty’s Ramp & Camp, buying—but not watching—Cayenne, and more.

I’m soon joined by my former and current roommate, Ivan Narez. We talk about adult stuff like buying vans, taxes, credit, and Valo 6.
