Wow, 100 episodes of Awesome! I’m so happy that we’ve made it this far—and I’ve been podcasting for over 10 years. There’s something way more powerful about hitting 100 episodes than being in the industry for over a decade. Out of all the podcasts I’ve been part of, only three have gone over 100 episodes—AND that includes Everything is Awesome. Thank YOU, the listeners, for hanging out for as long as you have. While this show wouldn’t exist without all the guest who have donated their valuable time to sit down with me, it also wouldn’t exist without you.
I like to take the opportunity to do something different with our milestone episodes. So, for this one, we not only did the show LIVE, from one of my favorite venues in the city (Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse), but we played a game! Taking a page out of an actual play podcast’s book, I had Jeff Stormer (from Party of One Podcast) run a game for us. He ran a game he’s designing, Mission:Accomplished!, and it was amazing!
My normal co-host, Mike DeAngelo, couldn’t make it, so I brought in my good friend Garrett Smith to be a familiar face. I wanted to stack this episode with funny people, so I turned to past guest, Joe Gates, to fill in another spot on the player side. Joe is a well connected player in the improv world here in Philadelphia, so he led me to Dan Higgins and Hannah Datz. As you can hear, he more than delivered in finding me some funny people!
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Zack and Diana from Heart Points Pod one last time. They performed their show live before we went on and it was very entertaining.
On one final note, this show is dedicated to the Kurtz family—a very good friend of mine lost his niece in a hit and run accident. To help pay for medical bills and funeral costs, they have setup a GoFundMe. If you have extra money, consider donating: https://www.gofundme.com/memorial-fund-for-jessica-kurtz
We’ve relaunched our Patreon! Instead of running multiple services to collect pledges for the things we do, we combined everything into ONE location. This will allow us to keep everything centralized, only ask for your support at one location, and better upgrade our entire operation. With your support, That’s Entertainment and Everything is Awesome will be able to make upgrades to provide not only higher quality content, but more of it.
Thank you in advance for supporting us; it means the world to Kev and Mike. If you’re unable to support us on Patreon, consider subscribing to Everything is Awesome on iTunes and leaving a 5-star text review or telling a friend–your Patreon pledges, iTunes reviews, and word of mouth recommendations go a long way at helping us do bigger and cooler things, like live shows, con appearances, and creating more high quality content.
