This week, you’ll hear about something that Ian introduced into Dan’s life: cycling.
But this episode isn’t just about riding bikes. Patrick shares his attitudes about generating revenue with his blog, writers that inspire him and lots more.
Hardcore cycling enthusiasts should stay tuned for some bonus content after the credits as well, where Patrick and Dan geek out about the ultimate places to cycle, the controversy over disc brakes and ideal tire pressures (yes it gets THAT wonky).
