UsedWigs Radio 100: Team Todd


This is officially UsedWigs Radio Show #100 and officially our last show (tidal wave of tears). It was a super fun ride, thank you all for having us.

I want to thank everyone who participated, helped out and attended this Team Todd event. It was a really wonderful night, one that Todd would have loved.

Big hugs to the performers: Russ Starke, Heather Hall, Kimberly Hall, Dave Hill, Chip Chantry, Nikki WalterBrian Seymour, Rich Kaufmann, Scott Michael Shrake, Anna Goldfarb, Jon Solomon, Kevin Ginsberg, Brad Sukala, Lisa Starke and Bevan McShea for bringing all the laughs, stories and tunes. The tiny flabby muscles in my stomach are still hurting from laughing.

And big high-fives to Kell Andrews, Heather Andrews, Thomas Jadico Jr, C.j. Stahl, Brian Jacobs, Eric Smith, Colin Helb, Dan Eastman, Adam Picarelli, Kerri Foxhill, Geekadelphia and Cutesy but not Cutesy for the support. And big sweaty hugs to everyone else who was there and made it super fun. It meant a lot to Russ and Heather and me to have you all there! 

Alright, enough yapping, here’s the audio, videos coming soon!
