This week, Tim and Jess welcome Andy back to the podcast for a fun chat about the changing weather, and then an interesting dive into the way certain businesses and brands are showing up to consumers in new and engaging ways!

First, the trio chat about everything FALL - changing temps, waning daylight, and some important reminders for safety out there on the roads and trails. This convo connects to the perfect Marathon conditions everyone saw in Chicago for our newest women’s world record - go Brigid Kosgei

Then, they explore some new marketing and brand innovations by profiling several companies that are working to diversify how they are showing up to consumers. In many cases, businesses are tapping into the new “experience market,” and are taking their traditional product-based brands into new engaging directions (everyone from Lululemon to Crate and Barrel). Oh, and Tim also mentions a need for a new vacuum - got a reco?
