E540 – OMTea! (with Lillian Karabaic of Oh My Dollar)

Lillian Karabaic is the founder of the wildly successful personal finance website (AKA “lifestyle blog” 🙂 ) Oh My Dollar! And today we talk to her about not only the confounding nature of a bicycle commuter learning to work from home but also the challenge of creating a non-alcoholic whiskey substitute!  Brock & Armando both tried OMTea and loved it, and in this conversation you may discover why you will too!

Today’s Episode is brought to you in part by the generous support of Gregory Braithwaite. Go check out his youtube channel BikeVids!

Also, as always, thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers on SE12th and Division, now open for more than 4,000 days consecutively. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.

And, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!
