Here we heard all about what Harle has been working on and get a few details on what’s to come with Newport Castle, a movie project she has been working on.

Rhode Island-based Rent Sons looks a lot like the Uber of odd jobs, yet has the heart of the Peace Corps. They see a lot of divide in the world today and have taken on odd jobs as a way for us all to get to know each other better. Uniting communities, growing young adults, all while scaling at a San Francisco startup rate. Pat Brown, CEO of Rent Sons and a Little Compton resident, joined Ryan and Frank for the second half of the show to chat more about his company, living life to the fullest, and more.
