8 - Blume Brothers Pedicab

Meet Christian Blume, co-founder of Blume Brothers Pedicab. In this episode, Scott and Arden get to know the ins and outs of pedicabbery as Christian talks about everything from the trials and tribulations of starting a new business to the hazards of frisky customers to the experience of helping the city create laws around this developing Chicago industry. Also, This Day in Chicago makes a triumphant comeback (this segment might actually make it), some excellent bitching on Lake Michigan restrictions takes place and Pedi-Cups, the cupcake pedicab company, is born (copyright Arden and Scott 2012).

And look! We even remembered to take a picture:
