“ If we don’t have the money then we aren’t in a place to own it.” - Guest Tim Messina

“ If we break our lives into thirds, we have a third of our life where we are basically sleeping, a third of our life we are at home doing errands and things, and the last third we are working. One is sleeping thats fine but I want to make sure the other two we really love both.” - Guest Tim Messina

“ The creatives are here, they live in different pockets and spots they just need more places to meet and create at, they are here.” - Host Dave Swillum x
