E434 – Darius from Omni: Sharing Stuff

Darius is working with a new way to share your things, and keep them too! Omni started as a storage option for people’s extra stuff, but now is also working to find people who want to rent the objects you think are cool, but don’t use all the time; they’re described as “an on-demand access company for things you don’t use every day, but can’t live without” That margarita mixer & those snowboarding pants just sit unused most of the time, why not put them to work earning money for you and making someone else’s life more interesting, while retaining access whenever you need them?  “Rent what you want now, store what you’ll want later.”  Omni just launched in Portland; Darius breaks it down for us.

Also, Aaron celebrates an anniversary & Brock rents a car.  After the regular segments Brock laments the end of his regular cohosting duties & they both bag on Dave Matthews.

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.
