Episode 88 - In today's episode, Matt B. talks to Jeff Suffolk, Co-Founder of Human Movement Management. We initially met Jeff last year when HMM took over for Run For Your Lives which went under mid-season.
Matt had the opportunity to visit HMM Headquarters in Louisville, Colorado and see how they operate for a day or so.
Matt and Jeff discuss the following:
Is the current beer mile record on YouTube legit and beatable?
Is soccer more interesting than American football?
What does the future hold for ocr/fun events or what Jeff calls "Active Entertainment"?
What in the hell is the event Human Movement planning for August of 2015?
(Hint: It involves tree houses)
