S1: Secrets of the Staff

Download MP3
"Secrets of the Staff" will ask our Video Heroes about their interaction with co-workers and the drama they encountered. You'll also hear about some of the promotional items they got to keep.
The first season of Rental Return - Tales From the Video Store continues! In Episode 4, you heard some of the crazy experiences our Video Heroes had while they were employed at the store and some of their unusual customers. Now it's time to hear the "Secrets of the Staff."

In Episode 5, get ready for some drama! You'll hear about some real co-worker issues from personal hygiene to former employees (allegedly) setting fire to the store, which is why Zac recommends you never hire best friends. Also included in this episode is some of the promotional items that our Video Heroes got to keep which includes a badge of honor that Preston still keeps in his personal collection and a stack of Spice World posters that Zac thought for sure was a small eBay fortune.

Our "Video Heroes" for Season 1 include Amanda Stefaniuk, Chris Tanski, Christian McGalliard, Gary Keffer, JP Vriess, Preston Burt, and Zac Shipley. Follow @TRNsocial on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for more from Rental Return visuals and VHS memories.
