On episode 14, I try something a little different and interview a travel startup entrepreneur in Jason Will of Zipkick.  Very few people know about Zipkick but it’s hitting the scene hard with the product they’ve built so far, the ambassadorship program with travel bloggers they’ve put together and the mega road trip they’re on right now.  Learn all about it on the show.
