Mailbag:

We hope you enjoyed our 10th, or April Fools, episode. It was a lot of fun to do. The inspiration for this show came from “Buzz Out Loud” celebrating the 10th anniversary of their first remarkable groundbreaking podcast. Tom, Molly, Veronica, Jason and all the crew in Buztown impacted the way we looked at the podcast medium and there are still little BOL homages to them in a lot of our audio today.
Jamie, Ricky, Joe, Buddy, Lisa, Richard and Patrick would all sincerely like to thank J.J. for allowing us to relive the old format one last time. J.J.'s contributions to our previous audio adventures, for nearly 5 years, have been numerous and insightful. He was a great sport and it seemed only fitting that he provide us some feedback in the form of the B Report. We'd also like to thank Bob Reid for helping us to resurrect the Mailbag and its theme song, and we thank Andre Lewis for his past musical contributions. Also, the entire team would like to give a big word of thanks to all our listeners. No matter if you have been listening to us over the years, or you have found our brand of audio recently, your support means the world to us!

Miscellaneous

We mentioned a few people and things during the podcast that didn't quite fit anywhere else, but definitely deserved a place in the show notes. First, we'll wish you a happy Easter and invite you to go on a Super Egg Hunt by downloading the popular game from Liam Erven at LWorks. If you wish to purchase the full version of Super Egg Hunt Plus, you can do that over at A T Guys.
While you're playing, you can listen to Randy Rusnak and a new crew on the newly renamed A11Y Devices Podcast.
