#31 "Buying A New Car" w/Doug McCoy
Doug is back for round three.  Jumping into the realm of buying cars, specifically new ones. We chat about how the used car market is not what it use to be and you can get more bang for your buck with interest rates being so low. My biggest take away from this one is: do your homework, it's a buyers market.  Follow Doug on IG @thelearnedkiltsman Follow Nathan on Twitter @SteelJanz & Ig @barbarianrhetoric Website barbarianrhetoric.com Check out Barbaricsoap.com and get Savagely Clean

#29 "Time to Prepare" w/Kevin Comer
This week I was able to sit down with a good friend of mine Kevin Comer. He has an adventurous heart. The first part of our conversation revolves around travel, not quite hacks, more along the line of tips to make your trips more enjoyable.  To give you some ideas on how you can prepare for when the world opens up once again. In the second part of our conversation, we start looking at how to afford traveling even in downtrodden times or working to clean the slate going forward. You may hit hard times this past year, you may still be recovering from a divorce, you may be looking at how to change going forward, we hit on all of this and more.
