Episode Description

Ed Pizzarello from Pizza in Motion and the Miles 2 Go podcast drops by to discuss his crazy Disney parkeology challenge for charity, the perils of overscheduling “vacation”, what loyalty might look like to consumers in the future, and why in the name of all that is good and just in this world did Bonvoy win at the Freddies?

In Final Boarding Call, Joe talks about lessons you should probably take from his semi-disastrous family trip over spring break.
