I have known our guest this week for many years. Going back to his first appearance on The Bob & Tom Show and then again on the road with The Bob & Tom Comedy Tour.

Auggie Smith has changed a lot. The man who exposed me to the wonders of a good chocolate martini and could party until it was time to catch a plane in the morning is now all grown up.

He is the proud father of two lovely children and the husband of one. His comedy has grown up too. He now thinks about his audience and the time and trouble it took them to get to a show, not about himself. Thus making for a more entertaining experience.

Auggie grew up with a single mom in Billings Montana. He excelled at speech and public speaking and had a teacher who suggested standup. His career really took off after moving to Portland Oregon and after doing The Bob & Tom Show.

We will learn about those early days and how comedy has played a major role in his life on and off the stage. I love the last line of my notes from this interview: The Story of Auggie Smith: The Bob & Tom Show, Being Positive, Most of Life is Good and Kindness!

Pretty much sums it up! Have fun!

Who doesn’t love an inspirational story? My guest this week has an incredible story.

Loni Love started working on the line in a GM plant in Detroit while still in high school. There she found a passion for electrical engineering, which landed her a scholarship to Prairie View A&M University in Texas.

While in Texas, she took the stage for the first time and fell in love with stand-up comedy, routinely getting gigs throughout college. Upon graduation, Love landed an engineering job in California and headed west to pursue her dream.

She became a regular at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, was selected for prestigious comedy festivals and was a finalist on the CBS revived Star Search.

Not only do we discuss THE REAL we also learn about her comedic heroes, road stories, and more. Loni told me she feels that her comedy shows are a celebration and that's how I feel about this episode.

Loni Love we celebrate you!

There are so many talented people occupying this planet. On a recent Friday I was able to sit down with 3.

Debra Fadely-Raber, Laura LaForge and Jodie Bailey represent just a few of the contributors to the Stutz Artists Open House April 27th and 28th in downtown Indianapolis.

Each of these women has a specialty. Debra happens to be a photographer who likes to shoot many different things. She is married to photographer Kevin Raber and they had the most unusual wedding, surrounded by penguins in Antartica!

Jodie is a visual artist who mainly works as a sculptor and hat maker. We are not talking your boring fedora. No, her creations are definitely works of art. Often times she uses unusual items like pencils or pages from a journal to craft a chapeau! (chapeau=hat in french) and Laura is an amazing painter.

Each of these women talk about the importance of art and art education, how they got started, how you can become a collector (all budgets) and of course the event.

The 25th Anniversary Stutz Artists Open House will be held Friday April 27th and Saturday April 28th with a VIP event on Thursday April 26th. The Stutz Business and Arts Center is located at 212 West 10th Street on the full city block between 10th and 11th Streets, between Capitol and Senate in downtown Indianapolis Indiana.

The two-day event celebrates the 25th year the Stutz artists have welcomed guests to their studios where they work all year long. The artists and building will be decked out in silver to celebrate the anniversary. Each artist is creating a work of art inspired by silver to be featured in their studio.

Artists will offer paintings, photography, furniture, sculpture, jewelry and more for purchase.

Tickets may be purchased and information found at:

For those of you familiar with Britt, Tiffany and I getting together on a semi-regular basis then this weeks show will not be a surprise.

If you are new, hang on!

A recent Friday evening found the three of us in Tiffany's beautiful new kitchen sipping wine. Out of the gate Britt starts with her “waxing” adventure since she is about to go on Spring Break. That leads to a discussion on underwear and one of Tiffany's most embarrassing moments.

We also learn the interesting way Tiff uses to get her son to brush his teeth. I have to admit I was stunned!

We discuss elderly parents, grandparent names and then switch gears to Millennials.

Katy, our social media queen steps up to the mic to talk about her peers and what it is like to be a hard working young person with her own business.

Tiffany and I relive our trip to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah and how a documentary changed how we shop. I am not sure how the show ends except that we headed out (Uber) to see comedian Joel McHale at a local comedy club and Britt was nearly thrown out.

Like I said earlier hang on…

On a recent Saturday I was lucky enough to sit down with one of my comedic heroes, Jimmy Pardo. Jimmy has appeared on “The Tonight Show”, “Conan”, “ The Late, Late, Show” and had his own special on “Comedy Central”.

His signature crowd work (go see him LIVE!) led him to be Conan’s opening act at show tapings for the past several years. Along with field correspondent work and even co-hosting duties on Conan, Jimmy has also hosted numerous shows and specials for the Game Show Network, Science Channel, VH-1, AMC, NBC and more.

With so much to talk about I actually steered Jimmy to his outstanding podcast, “Never Not Funny”. An award winning podcast that started in the infancy of podcasting, way back in 2006!

Find out why he started, who his dream guests are, and why he used his podcast to deal with a couple of very personal heartbreaks.

He has also started the Podcast-a-Thon fundraiser for the charity “Smile Train”. This 12 hour marathon webcast has raised over a half a million dollars to help children born with cleft lips and palates.(smiletrain.org).

Of course we talk stand up too. How he writes jokes, his style, and the early days. Jimmy and his wife Danielle are also the proud parents of young Oliver. The son of two entertainers who appears to be destined for a life in show business. If Oliver’s school talent show is any indication Frank Caliendo and Kevin Pollack may have some competition.

I hope you enjoy this show as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. I can not underscore enough how much I love the talented Mr. Pardo.

Greg Warren is no stranger to Bob and Tom Show fans. “Fluteman” Greg has made numerous appearance on our show and on comedy stages across the country.

Hailing from St. Louis, MO, Greg was a two time state high school wrestling champion and an All American in college. His many years spent on the mat also inspired one of his more famous stand up routines, Fluteman.

We learn how his teammates and coaches played a big part in his early comedy career. One that did not begin right out of college. After 10 years Greg left a job in sales at Proctor and Gamble to “gamble” on a career behind the mic. One that paid off well.

He has since been featured on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central Presents, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, BET and CMT.

As you can imagine we talk wrestling, making weight, Pringles, living in LA, food, and of course comedy on this episode. Recorded in the lobby of his swanky hotel in Bloomington, IN. Please enjoy!

We all know racing families like Unser, Andretti, and Foyt. What happens when you don’t come from one of those families or have the means to get a “ride” in the million dollar sport of auto racing? Kristian Aleixo shares with us the struggles of being an up and coming professional race car driver.

His drive and inspiration is impressive. Kristian suffered through the loss of his mother at an early age, was haphazardly raised by an absentee father and even spent 75% of his high school years homeless. Following high school he enlisted in the United States Army. This Iraq War Veteran and 2 time U.S. Army Commendation Medal recipient had hopes of becoming an AH-64 Apache helicopter pilot. That dream was shattered with a diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, the same illness that took his mom.

Kristian would not take this set back lying down. He took the skills that made him a top pilot candidate and focused them on his life long dream of racing. With no money and no training Kristian got resourceful and called around to race tracks looking for someone to teach him.

A man in California offered to help in exchange for working at his track. With the proper accreditation he is now building his resume with the ultimate payoff being a ride in the Indianapolis 500! He also works for Sharp Entertainment as a television personality and is the author of “My Life in Story: The Outside Groove”.

Trust me Kristians enthusiasm is catchy!

Multi-talented performer Henry Phillips grew up on the outskirts of Los Angeles in a pretty normal suburban neighborhood with parents who are both actors. An accomplished touring stand up comic with critically acclaimed comedy albums.

Henry’s career actually started as a singer/songwriter. We find out how he morphed that into a stand up act. Growing up so close to Hollywood it was not a surprise that he would someday venture into filmmaking. With a small budget and a few friends in the business Henry produced and starred in his own film “Punching the Clown” which was released in 2009. A semi-autobiographical film about a comedian trying to make a career in stand up which won rave reviews. The journey to the big screen is a story in and of it self.

After winning awards at Slamdance (the Alternative film festival to Sundance) and ending up on Netflix Henry started to get noticed by industry people. That led to a second film, Punching Henry in 2017 which is appearing now on Showtime. This time around some heavy hitters were involved including Oscar winning actor JK Simmons and comedian/actress Sarah Silverman. Learn how they were talked into the movie and we get a funny story from the red carpet premiere.

Henry isn’t through making movies either. He talks about a new film he wants to make surrounding open mic music nights in the early 90’s. He has also had success on the small screen. His “Henry’s Kitchen” videos are a YouTube favorite and have spawned a Patreon following.

And then there is coffee. Much of his life surrounds coffee which has made for some rather interesting encounters. One particular story involves comedian, actor, producer Mike Birbiglia and an explosion!

Top off all of this talent with music. A love that started as an 8yr old and found Henry practicing the guitar for up to 4 hours a day. A rather accomplished musician, Henry shares his musical heroes and more.

The soft spoken Henry Phillips has a charm unlike any other person I have ever met. After listening I think you will agree!

Drew Storen is one of only 6% of athletes who sign a deal to play baseball to make into the “Big Leagues”. As a relief pitcher he has played for the Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds.

Currently he is rehabbing successful Tommy John Surgery and hopes to be pitching again in 2019. He sits down with me and talks about how he beat the odds and become one of the 6%. Find out what his best experience to date has been in the majors. Learn what city is his favorite to pitch in, favorite ballpark and what “other” famous athlete was at Stanford the same time as Drew.

An ambitious young man learn about his plans for after his career on the field is over. And with all of my podcasts we then venture off into some other areas of interest. Drew happens to be a big car guy. So of course we talk cars! He enjoys painting, on canvas, not houses!

He also happens to have a fascination with the military. A chance encounter with a baseball fan who lived in his neighborhood while in D.C. fed that interest. The fan turned out to be the legendary Navy pilot Chuck “Heater” Heatley. The F-14 pilot, Top Gun instructor, and photographer was an inspiration for the movie Top Gun. (Check out Heaters book, “Cutting Edge” it came out in 1986 but has amazing shots from his fighter jet.) Drew has even flown an F-16 simulator!

From here we talk memorabilia and his treasured collectibles. And I couldn't resist asking him if he does impressions like his famous dad, sportscaster and former Bob and Tom Show member Mark Patrick.

All in all a fascinating talk with a talented, interesting, and likable young man.

The Bob & Tom Show favorite Pat Godwin joins us this week. Pat began singing and writing songs as a young man growing up in northeastern Pennsylvania. In his 20’s he was performing in and around Philadelphia where he caught the attention of veteran comedian Todd Glass.

Todd found Pat’s songs nice but it was the funny banter between songs that Todd really enjoyed. Enough that he convinced Pat to show up for an open mic at a comedy club to try his hand at stand up. In the crowd that night was the legendary Philly radio God John DeBella. DeBella was so impressed by Pat’s funny songs that he hired him to compose 4 on a daily basis.

Taken straight from the headlines these tunes became a staple on the Morning Zoo at WMMR for nearly 7yrs. We learn how Pat ended up going to The Howard Stern Show where he stayed until around early 2002. We discuss the first time he visited The Bob & Tom Show, let him play us a few tunes, and then things turn a bit serious.

Pat has suffered in the past from situational depression usually following a breakup. These bouts have seen him abusing anxiety medication and alcohol with some not so pretty results. We relive one of those moments following a comedy show in Farmington, New Mexico.

We also discuss life as a single dad to an adopted teenage daughter and a 7yr old son Jimmy, who sometimes goes out on the road and even steps on stage for laughs of his own.

And please stick around for the amazing Keith Richards encounter that Pat decided to save for last. You may laugh, sing along or even tear up a bit with Pat Godwin this week.

Jeff Boggs is a producer, writer, and sometimes actor based in Los Angeles, California.

Jeff started his career with an internship on “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC. The odds of getting an internship with Dave is slim so Jeff had an interesting way of getting “in the door”.

Once there he took full advantage of the position. Find out about his big break becoming the “Board Guy” leading to a job as the receptionist on the talent floor and then on to the writers floor receptionist. (Many start at the bottom and work their way up. Good life lesson young people.)

Writing proved to be one of Jeff’s greatest talents and the staff of Late Night took notice. Jeff’s first joke to make it on the show was part of the famous Dave’s Top Ten list. His stint with Dave saw him nominated for a Prime-time Emmy and trip to the Emmy’s! His next job was with The Tom Green Show on MTV. This required a move to LA and an ironic skit where Tom “marries” actress Drew Barrymore. However that fell through when Tom and Drew actually started dating.

Jeff went on to Nashville as developer and producer of “Nashville Star”. The show was inspired by American Idol but unlike Idol the contestants had to sing country music. Judges included Blake Shelton, Brett Michaels, Wynonna Judd and more. Jeff has some wonderful stores about his time with these powerful country music stars.

Jeff is currently working on a new project which he is being a bit secretive but we will keep you updated.

When not working Jeff has a love of Karaoke! Learn which songs are his favorites to perform and which song ALWAYS brings down the house. Enjoy the humor, wit and storytelling that comes so easily to Jeff on this weeks episode!

Like most of our Sh*t with Britt shows I never know where they will go. This time it is no different.

I supplied the soup, wine and atmosphere and we started with a “New Years Resolution” theme but quickly veer off. Like many of you losing weight and getting in shape topped the list for Britt, Tiffany and myself. We talk about Weight Watchers, gyms, fasting diets, and plastic surgery.

Then switch to Global Warming (ah the art of conversation) which leads to Tiffany announcing that her sister lives in Alaska. I know what you are thinking, yeah well so what, she lives in a DRY cabin and rides a BIKE everywhere. WOW!

I bring up my favorite book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Buy it, read it, live it! Tiffany also has a great story about letting her oldest son “fail” on a recent trip to Chicago. Sometimes live lessons have to come the hard way and as parents its our jobs to facilitate those lessons.

The rest of my notes from this night are just words. Knitting, shingles, stress, Christmas, mom calls, ballroom dancing, Sam Elliott, Roadhouse, Tom Cruise, Cardi B, Madonna and Bruno Mars. Now I can’t wait to listen and figure out exactly what the heck happened.

Cheers!

Who doesn’t love magic and magicians? My guest this week, Justin Willman is not only a talented magician he is also a stand up comic. A combination that adds up to amazing entertainment.

We learn how a couple of broken arms at the age of 12 put Justin on a path to stardom. With the stage name Justin Kredible, given to him by his mom, Justin honed his early craft at kids birthday parties and entertaining friends.

His love of magic eventually led him to LA and the legendary club the Magic Castle. Although his first visit did not go as planned he did end up doing lots of stage time.

Now he travels the country with his combo show of magic and comedy and will soon bring his talent to TV. Justin has just finished filming 6 episodes of his new show Magic for Humans for Netflix. A show that looks at magic from different facets of being human. Example: Love, guilt, self-expression, etc. I am intrigued and can't wait to watch.

We also learn what it takes to bring a show from an idea to your home.

Magic isn’t his only talent Justin also was the host of the show Cupcake Wars and more on the Food Network. He shares the worst cupcake he ever sampled and some of his favorite flavors. Oh and we find out how a magician ended up hosting a food show in the first place.

Justin also shares his wedding with us. He married Jill a couple of years ago in a ceremony that was both unique and romantic. The couple also threw in a little magic… The video of their first dance is mesmerizing. Suspend reality for a bit and let Justin bewitch you with his story!

Behind all successful people are those who get little if any recognition. The Bob and Tom Show has producer Dean Metcalf.

Dean joined the show as an intern in 1988 and never left.  In fact as the producer of the show his role is critical.  But just what does a producer do?  Dean will enlighten us.

He is also the voice behind many of our characters including, Jumbo the elephant, The Pope, and many nameless accents and on the fly call ins.

We learn how the Godzilla bit started, how he is a genius at editing on the fly, the birth of the Deans and more. What does an average morning look like for Dean?  What is it like to work with Tom?  We also veer away from The Bob and Tom show to talk about his incredible guitar collection.

Dean has amazing stories about his first guitar, his most expensive guitar, and his most cherished. Not only does Dean collect guitars he is an incredible player. He is a member of several bands including The Electric Amish, The Tempos, The Turnip Seeds, Area Code 812, and a couple of bluegrass ensembles.

In his spare time he collects Presidential memorabilia. How did that start? He has even acquired a couple of actual life size wax dummies of Presidents Grover Cleveland and Franklin Pierce. Where does one even buy a wax dummy of a former president? You will learn.

A fascinating look at a guy who rarely gets the attention he so deserves.

Our favorite sommelier is back! This time Arthur is talking holiday drinks. Did you know that champagne has to come from France? Most of the “bubbles” found on store shelves in America is of the sparkling wine variety. Find out which are Arthur's favorites.

The other big drink now is bourbon. We talk bourbon and more bourbon. We also discuss expensive wine, I mean very expensive wine. Is it worth the price? What was the most expensive bottle Arthur has ever shared?

And we can't talk drinks without talking hangovers. Are there any good hangover cures? We find out. Also Arthur and restaurateur Ed Rudisell started their own podcast called Shift Drink. Their show has prompted some rather unusual travels to places like Amsterdam, Paris, and Alsace France.

I would be remiss if I didn't say Arthur has some amazing and unbelievable tales from his adventures. Cheers to a wonderful Holiday Season! Enjoy!

Ooh that voice so distinct and smooth! World renowned motivational and business speaker Scott McKain is my guest this week. Scott has a remarkable ability to captivate and motivate anyone.

With a passion for business and bestselling books to back him up, Scott wows crowds with his dynamic presentations. We learn how he has become one of the best in the business. With a surprising start in not only radio but Future Farmers of America or FFA. As the state of Indiana FFA chapter president he took to the stage giving speeches all over the country.

After college hear how Scott met the famed film director Werner Hertzog. Hertzog was so impressed he asked Scott to play a villain in the movie “Stroszek”. Which was named one of the 50 great movies in the history of cinema by film critic Roger Ebert.

That role lead to a syndicated entertainment segment on 80 television stations for a decade and a stint as an anchorman for a CBS affiliate.

And then came the speeches, 7 books, and the founder and owner of several businesses.

Scott shares with us how to make your business stand out and some of the tricks to breaking into the speaking world. Are you one of the millions who suffer from public speaking? Well, Scott has help for you too!

A gifted storyteller Scott shares some amazing tales with us. Like his chance meeting with a taxi driver in Jacksonville, FL and the hunt for cuff links on a Sunday night at closing time. Both are not to be missed.

I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to sit down with Mr. McKain and learn some tips from the best of the best. I am pretty sure he will be as informative and helpful to you as well.

Britt, Tiffany and I are back with another fabulous edition of Sh*t with Britt. This episode lands us in Tiffany’s newly renovated kitchen (very jealous) complete with yummy snacks and plenty of prosecco.

We start by talking about one of Tiffany’s sons, Gage, who is 13 and waiting for his mom to turn back on his “Call of Duty” game. Do you edit your kids time on electronic devices? Tiff does and we find out how and why.

We also get an update on Briggs her eldest who had a scary incident that was discussed on an earlier podcast. He has decided on a college for next year and we reminisce about our own days of higher education. I may not have attended college for any length of time but I still pledged a Fraternity. Yes I said fraternity. Rho,Rho,Rho!

Oh and we also find out that Tiffany is against selfies. (she sounds like such a mean mom, ha) And what would this ADD podcast be without throwing in some serial killer talk, teeth whitening, holiday traditions and the first male to visit the show!

I think that about covers it. Honestly, I am not sure because when the prosecco is flowing and Britt is involved you never know. Guess you just have to listen.

I hate to break this to some of you but Donnie Baker isn’t real. There I said it! He is however, the brainchild of the talented stand up comic and professional broadcaster, Ron Sexton.

On the podcast we find out how Ron began his career. He didn’t just jump into calling The Bob and Tom Show with character voices. He got a start very early in middle school doing sports reports for the Franklin Central High School radio station in Indianapolis. He knew pretty quickly that radio was something he wanted to pursue.

Ron continued to follow his passion while attending Butler University mainly doing play by play and sports reporting. Which led him to covering sports for an Indianapolis TV station. He quickly learned that TV wasn’t his thing and took a job with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. It would be an executive position in the broadcast department complete with a company car and steady employment.

His suit wearing days were numbered though when he was approached by Indy sports legend Mark Patrick. Mark offered Ron a full time job that would put him back “on the air” for Fox Sports Radio. A show that ended up being ahead of its time featuring a heavy dose of comedy over hard hitting sports.

After a 3 year run the program ended and that’s when Ron started to call into The Bob and Tom Show. His impressions are many, Tony Soprano, Charles Barkley, Jim Rome, Morgan Freeman the list goes on and on. Along with these famous impressions Ron has created the long running characters, Kenny Tarmac, Floyd the Trucker and of course Donnie Baker.

We talk about how Donnie evolved on the show, the creation of his band the Pork Pistols, and his new found fame on the internet. My favorite segment is when we talk about comedic heroes. Especially the late great Tim Wilson! Ron has some special memories to share about this wonderful comedian. (many in Tim’s voice which Ron has DOWN).

Things you also learn on this episode: Ron is an excellent high school baseball coach. He LOVES music and would like to open for a famous rock star! And yes, he has a hidden talent! All you have to do is listen to find out. State Law!

Drew Hastings’ road to politics was gravel and a bit bumpy. After spending 13 years in Hollywood he yearned for a less hectic life. He returned to Ohio were he had spent his formative years. But instead of a big city like Cincinnati or Cleveland he decided to buy a small farm in rural Hillsboro.

Determined to make his town more vibrant he ran for mayor. And to the surprise of many was actually elected. This tall, well dressed man with the rock n roll hair proved to be quite a competent leader.

During his tenure his sleepy little town has been spruced up and made financial more sound. However, after finishing his second term he will not seek a third. We find out why and how the last years in office have changed him.

In this hodgepodge of a podcast we jump around from his start in comedy to women’s rights and from polo to paintball. (You HAVE to listen it will make sense.) Drew also gets a bit serious while discussing his marriage of almost 4 years and coming to terms with his own death.

Sprinkled amongst his stories of the shredding business that got out of hand and the polo mallet earring he used to wear we meander into technology. What is it like raising a child in this ever changing fast paced world? We even hear from my social media director/promotions person Katy who’s approach to technology and social media is a complete 180 from mine or Drew’s.

Other tidbits: discover what career Drew really wanted, the name of his national silver medal paintball team, and what’s next for this smart talented mayor.

Since the early 80’s Ace Cosby has been a staple in the lives of many rock and roll radio fans. He dominated the airwaves in central Indiana for over 30 years.

Not only was he an amazing radio air personality, music director and assistant program director he was a great friend to many of the classic rock bands of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Including; Kiss, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Quiet Riot, Styx and so many more. And on top of all that he has been one of my dearest friends.

Not only did he help me get my job at WFBQ (which led me eventually to Bob and Tom) but we have shared more adventures than should be allowed in a lifetime. Like the time we went to the Playboy Club in Lansing Michigan with Kiss members, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Bruce Kulick. Or when I played house mom to Ace Cosby and Off Your Rocker the band that would practice in my basement and infuriate all of my neighbors. Twice drawing a visit from the police.

But the more interesting stories are all Ace’s. Learn who is the nicest guy or gal in rock and roll. Find out how Ace broke into the radio business. His encounter with Michael Bolton that in a way actually effected my life. His “date” with a Playboy playmate that came back to haunt him later in life. The almost proposal involving a Jon Bon Jovi concert in Atlanta.

Find out what it is like to hang with the Jack Blades of Nightranger and Tommy Shaw of Styx. And then to have your whole world come crashing down with a massive corporate radio house cleaning.

Ace has lived quite the life and thanks to Tom of The Bob and Tom Show (who makes a brief appearance on this podcast) he is back for round two. Ace is the definition of a legend and we are damn happy to have him back on the air where he belongs!

“When was the last time you did something for the first time? “

I heard those words for the first time in a documentary at the Heartland Film Festival entitled “Live Adventurously” featuring Kate Nolan and her wife Danielle Wolter-Nolan. Together they own and run a company called DNK Presents which takes everyday folks on the adventures of a lifetime. From couples trips to discover the dinosaur tracks in Moab Utah, to an 8 mile trek down into the South rim of the Grand Canyon into the Havasupai Indian Reservation, to a yoga retreat in Guatemala. Kate and Danielle do it all.

Not only do they work for companies and retreats but they have also taken to helping others through their women’s adventure contest. This contest was the basis for the documentary that I stumbled on and cannot forget.

Four women were chosen from a group of nominations for a 4 day backcountry adventure. All of the women have a story and they all finished the weekend much stronger than they started both mentally and physically. This first contest started in 2016 and has now become an annual event. The 2017 adventure is being worked into a feature film and nominations for the 2018 adventure begin on January 1st.

Kate and Danielle share their top thrills, the things they WILL NOT do and adventures yet to be discovered. These two could motivate even this “set in her ways” gal to get off the couch and onto a mountain bike. Well, maybe…
