The Mascot Wedding Show is over and it feels good. David Jara and myself wrapped up our radio show turned podcast last week with episode 300. We ended it on our own terms and I’m proud to have that body of work on my figurative shelf.
You probably didn’t know I had a podcast. It’s fine, there’s a lot of them out there.
The Mascot Wedding Show didn’t have to be the best it could be. It was my friendship with David Jara, it was an excuse to talk to people I admired, it was the act of making something. The show checked off a lot of boxes for me. Enough to justify doing three hundred of them in relative obscurity. I do think we ended the program with some of our best episodes.
I met David Jara at a crooked e-learning company back in 2005. I remember him being surprised that I liked some slightly arty movie, saying he thought I was more of a “Steven Seagal guy.”
I’m honored he thought our conversations were worth recording for 7.5 years. He’s one of the funniest guys on the planet. Thank you David.
If you didn’t listen to any of the final episodes, at least listen to the audio adventure at the end of 298. It starts around the 48:00 mark. I spent a lot of time on it and it’s a little gross, so of course I love it.
