While majority of America is continuing to work their butts off, it appears the stars of The Funny Business Podcast, Tim Miles and Ryan Patrick, have let their non-existent fame go to their heads and are jet-setting off on a lavish vacation.
OK, in reality they are preparing to head to Austin, TX for AdTalks – a two day event for really smart business owners where they will be presenting…but still…who do they think they are??
In case you have missed any episodes (how dare you?) or just want to hear their sweet melodious voices, here is a shortcut to all of the previous episodes of Funny Business: The 18-Minute Podcast about Management, Marketing, and Meatloaf:
SEASON 1, EPISODE 10: “How do you measure success?” (March 1, 2017)

SEASON 1, EPISODE 8: “The NFL Will Hunt You Down” (February 1, 2017)

In this episode of Funny Business, Tim and Ryan discuss the do’s and don’ts of Super Bowl ™ advertising … and whether or not you should even ADVERTISE during the Big Game ™. Spoiler alert: probably not.
