  • I don’t know what to wear on Crunch Report (It’s a hard decision and I suck at dressing myself). If you are a startup or a just want to me to wear something mail me an XL T-shirt and I’ll wear it in an episode. I’m not going to mention the company on the shirt in the episode but it will be there. No offensive stuff, it’s totally at my discretion if I wear it. Mail it to me. Thanks <3 Ok, bye.
