On this episode of the BYLU Campaign podcast, Daniel and Nathan come prepared with questions for one another. Here we discuss the origin of Daniel’s strong character as well as his decision to give his mom a retirement date, Nate’s persona and its authentic, and the negative experiences that have shaped them the most.
