How To Cut The Cord On Your Cable Bill

SPONSOR: OMEGA Processing Solutions

Tyler Menke and Michael Kaser started Bill Busters over a conversation in a living room about their rising cost of their cable bills.

"We used to pay around $100 a month, and then $200 a month and towards the end it was over $200 a month," said Menke. "I cut the cord first when I found out we could still watch the Reds on Playstation Vue's and also keep all the channels we loved for half the price."

They two neighbors started negotiating their rates and soon found out that when armed with the correct information, getting the best deal was easy. 

This podcast explores the tips for cutting the cord yourself: how to do it, what to buy and where to buy it. 

"We found out that you need good competitive info, and direct local contacts to get the best deal," said Menke.  

They decided to build a web platform that would do just that. Soon they uncovered 295 combinations of options internet, cable and streaming services in Greater Cincinnati. Their matching algorithm tells you which package is best for your needs and then arms you with that information and price so you can call the company and renegotiate yourself. 

If that sounds like too much work, you can have one of their expert negotiators do if for you. If they save you money, they keep the first month's savings and you save for the rest of the year.

The Bachelor & Bourbon, Episode 3

SPONSOR: OMEGA Processing Solutions 

Jessica and Kevin Duke recap episode 4 of The Bachelor.

The episode starts out with a rose ceremony which results in sending two girls home. We continue into the show traveling to Nick's hometown Milwaukee Wisconsin. It starts off with the first one on one date with Danielle L. It then jumps into a group date where the 13 girls on the date learn a little about farm chores. We of course still have our drama with Corrine through out the show. It moves onto another one on one with Raven. They have what most people would call a very normal first one on one date. Soccer games and rollerblades are involved. The show ends with a cocktail party but no rose ceremony and all of us wondering if Corrine or Taylor is smarter.

This episode started off with a rose ceremony and with lots of attention on Corrine. From whip cream to her sleeping through the ceremonly, all hot topics during the beginning of this episode. 

The first group date was a dance rehearsal with The Backstreet Boys to perform and win over best dancer for Nick. 

The one on one date this episode was with Vanessa. The date ended in a rose despite her getting sick during the zero gravity flight. 

The last group date consisted of three Olympians rallying the girls to do funny Olympian games to win over Nick. It ended with a pool party instead of a cocktail party where we were left with a cliffhanger once again to who was going to go home.
