About the episode

Bryan Edwards and Phil Riportella have been best friends since middle school, though after college, their careers took them on different paths. Bryan spent the first part of his career in management consulting while Phil was in investment banking. But Bryan had a feeling he would want to start his own business one day, and he knew Phil would be the ideal partner if he ever did—they just needed an idea. And then this happened.
