Episode Notes

With Joe Cortez unavailable last minute, we call upon the big boss himself to join us for Episode 23. We kicked off the episode recounting Matt’s latest forays in South America (1:30) before discussing our experiences on the continent in general (16:40). We close out the extended travel discussion discussing the Zika virus and how global issues affect our trip planning (23:26).

We then switch gears, talking about the various legal issues that the community experienced last week and doing our best to help keep you out of jail (28:36) or even avoid detainment.

This week we address a reader question about strategies for maximizing a relationship with Chase if you’re not a business owner (42:15) before hitting an extended Last Word (52:40).

Featured in the Last Word – our thoughts on Delta these days, how much we would spend to buy Ultimate Rewards points (57:38), and some SPORTSBALL discussion (1:06:21).

Special thanks to Matt for pinch hitting and schooling us in the ways of the world!
