Episode 046: When you get scammed by a shoe shiner

Happy February! In Episode046 we wrap up with our January happenings. Our travels took us to the biggest city in Turkey, Istanbul. We went not for touristy stuff, but to help our friends, the Butterworths(co-founders of The Coffee Compass). The chat also includes some random happenings like people being scammed by shoeshiner tricks, trends in Istanbul, and where we are headed to this month – *hint* it’s warmmmm there!
