Mike sits down with Clay and Chad from Kindred Spirits

TIKI Talk Episode 29 features Mike and Clay Cothron & Chad Davis from the Kindred Spirits Podcast!

Join Mike, Clay and Chad as they discuss Mike’s time in Hong Kong, Chad and Clay’s background and history prior to Kindred Spirits, the role of cost analysis, NASCAR dreams, TIKI’s role in reshaping the economics of the internet, and how you could voluntarily sign up to become part of the Human Centipede by haphazardly checking boxes on Terms of Service agreements.
