E237 – Ayleen! Filmed By Bike 2015 & Airbnb hosting

Ayleen Crotty is preparing for the 13th annual Filmed By Bike! This year it’s at a new location in the Hollywood Theatre and promises to be every bit as exciting as its previous iterations, including a sweet street party at Velo Cult Bike Shop.  She also shares a little of her experience as an AirBnB host.

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

Also:  Brock assembled a sound system using a handy instructable, and Aaron picked a twitter fight with a controversial journalist.
