A few weeks ago on this podcast, Dan and Ian were talking about some of their biggest pet peeves.

In that episode, Ian lamented that the quality of flip flops available for purchase had drastically declined.

What happened next should come as no surprise. A few listeners of this show reached out to us to let us know that they had started their own product business manufacturing flip flops.

On today's episode, Jeremy joins us to talk about how their company was founded, how his experience as a political consultant helped Hari Mari grow, and how they were able to go from ground zero to having their products sold in big box retail stores.
