The full story behind the hugely successful and viral game, Cards Against Humanity, and the personal story and thoughts behind one of their eight co-founders, Max Temkin. This is an awesome story about a group of friends, and how through creating something for their own entertainment, ended up building an extremely profitable business that sets an example for what a successful company should be in many ways. If you haven't played the game before, you can download it for free off their website - or of course, buy the game online and dive in.

In this episode I chat with James and Rachel from Idletheorybus - an Instagram account which documents their travels across the backcountry of the United States in their classic VW bus. These two are the real deal. They live simply, own very little and live below the "American poverty line", and are showing the world that it's not only possible, but an amazing way of life.

#6: Josey Orr - Dyer and Jenkins

Josey Orr is the co-founder of Dyer and Jenkins, a popular men's clothing brand, which specializes in raw denim jeans, shirts, jackets, and more - all of which is made from beginning to end in America. They also run a large and growing Instagram account, and coined the tagline "Forge Your Own Path" - which I dig. We talk about his whole story, from growing up on his family owned scrap yard, to rehab and loosing everything, to his first and now second company. ENJOY!
