We return from our Hilton Head vacation full of energy, stories, and inside jokes. We built our future BP HQ's out of sand in hopes of dominating the sandbox with a little more clarity. We are proud to announce our future HQ will have a strong cash cow which may lead to us being cancelled. Andy is scared, and Dec is thinking big picture. Hilton Head is our home away from home and we are having too much fun. It's important to note, with Andy's laptop crashing once and for all, Decky Dents steps in with Adobe Audition (not a sponsor) which we have no idea how to operate inside the foreign confines of a new audio software. 
Jordan is a former All-American running back and D-III Offensive Player of the Year for the University of St. Thomas. As the Gatorade Player of the Year in his home state of Wyoming, Jordan received a scholarship to play football at the University of South Dakota. However, 2 years later, after a series of tragic events within the span of a week, Jordan found his love for God and Catholicism. Jordan transferred to the University of St. Thomas where he joined the seminary studying philosophy and playing football. Post college, Jordan was hired as a scout for the Seattle Seahawks last season and now currently is the running backs coach at the University of St. Thomas.
Angie is the co-founder of Okon Fitness, an online fitness company that seeks to empower others to take control of their bodies and be the best versions on themselves. Angie has her own transformation story detailing her unfulfilling experiences with drugs and alcohol in college to becoming a bikini model and eventually a fitness coach. Angie has accomplished everything up to this point by being radically herself (if you don't believe us, start watching her instagram stories). Hear more about how she continues her success empowering other women (and now 2 wildly average guys) to do the same.
Ty is becoming far too good as a producer which is causing concern that he could leave and make more money elsewhere. We walk through the potential of someone calling us as a reference to what it's like to work with Ty. Other topics include Jack Burke stumbling into the studio all sweaty after a bike ride, we recognize our average quality in hospitality, and we build the hype for Twin Week.

Go check out her NEW cook book that she created including 40 summer time bites that are affordable, tasty, and they will make you thankful that you don't have BP boys cooking for you.Every listener is a marketing intern.

The status of Andrew's ankle sprain has been in flux amongst the Marketing Interns that have him in their Podcast Fantasy starting lineup. We clear the air on the injury and Dec and Ty also give their ankle updates (spoiler: they're healthy).
