Refuel is a podcast that shares stories of entrepreneurs who are running all kinds of interesting businesses and shares the lessons they have learned along the journey.
 
Based off their mildly successful blog of the same name, best friends and romcom aficionados Kat Jiang and Alex M. Lu review your favorite romantic comedies and ask the hard questions, like, how DOES Katherine Heigl afford that apartment on an assistant's salary? New episodes every two weeks! Hopefully.
