VideosWhen we launched The Biscuit in 2018, we decided to make a video called LimeDog about a dog-sharing app that was sure to be the next wave in the “sharing economy.” Since then, we’ve gotten pretty good at making funny videos that comment on things happening in Charlotte through a new lens.

So take a big bite – but beware, this Biscuit is known to bite you back.
