Welp… that’s a wrap. We didn’t quite make it to 250 episodes, and we didn’t quite make it to five years, but that’s how life goes sometimes. Who would have guessed when we started the show that Kevin would be heading off to New York City and Taylor would be heading to Los Angeles? …I mean, I suppose you probably could have made an educated guess. Nevertheless!

We hope you have enjoyed the show whether you listened to one ep or every ep (god save your poor soul). Please know we telepathically heard every time you yelled at your listening device when we got something wrong. You guys yell a LOT!

To absolutely everyone involved in making this show – producers, guests, designers, photographers, bandmates and listeners – THANK YOU.

And now we present The End.

We did it, you guys! All of us! We got together and had a party and talked about John Cusack with slurred speech and danced and drank and watched Cusack movies all night long!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out last Thursday! We hope you all had fun. Thanks to DJ Josiah Hesse, Lisa Prank and SPELLS for providing kick-ass entertainment! If you want to see some photos, check out the previous post.

We’ll let you know when we put together another show. Cheers, y’all!
