LET’S TACO BOUT IT!
Taco Bout It started four years ago with the mission to educate viewers on industry insights and let Gogan eat hundreds of tacos in peace. Four seasons later and every episode still brings the heat!
Since COVID-19, there have been lots of changes, challenges, and chances to grow — that’s what Taco Bout It Season 4 was all about. For many, it took a pandemic for us to think through how we do business.
