Rental Return S1 EP5: Secrets of the Staff

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.

Programming Note: The next episode of Rental Return will be the Season 1 Finale featuring an extended show with all of our Video Heroes discussing their final days as a Rental Store employee so don’t miss it!
