For the first time ever we’re selling something! Now on our bandcamp is a collection of our interactions with one of our favorite characters, Arthur Truckee. Previously only available for people who pledged to a radio station five years ago, this 6-track album is now available for one lousy stinking dollar. That’s it! If you want to sample one of the tracks before committing 100 pennies to it, you may do so below.
Our Scharpling & Wurster love is on full display on this thing and we think that’s great. Enjoy!
As you may have heard at the end of Episode 292, The Mascot Wedding Show is ending at episode 300. Yes, we know that’s right around the corner. Yes, we know it’ll be here before we know it. It’s okay to cry, my sweet boy or girl. Let it out now.
For those who are just hearing this news for the first time, here is the shortened version: David is leaving Austin soon and, rather than try to keep MWS going as some sort of cringeworthy Skype/Dropbox frankenpodcast across a couple of time zones, we figured 300 episodes was as good a time as any to call it a day. It was an easy decision given the circumstances, but by no means was this our favorite decision. We have always enjoyed doing this show, and our recent rebirth as a podcast has been a lot of fun. But these things happen, you know?
That said, we don’t want to mope around and treat this like a sad occasion. Your radio lions want to go out with a bang. As of this writing, we are eight episodes away from 300. We’re already planning some super-fun stuff for the home stretch, and we’re excited for you to hear them. That’s the thing, though. We want people to hear them. A lot of people. We want to go out on top, which means we would like to go out with more listeners than we’ve ever had before. Here’s how you can help with that:
Leave us a positive review on iTunes. The iTunes algorithm likes that sort of thing, and so do we. If we like your review, we’ll read it on the air.
Help us spread the word. Tell your friends about the show. Link to our Facebook or Twitter.
Listen to the archives, either through iTunes or right here at mascotwedding.com. There’s enough comedy here to get you through dozens of road trips.
Most importantly, we want you to enjoy our final episodes. We’re honored to have been part of your listening habits for the past eight(?!) years. Consider these final episodes our way of saying thanks.
Episode 292: From the comedy group Bad Boys, Byron Brown and Sam Malcolm join us in studio for a packed show. How packed? We have a Mascot Wedding Vision Quest, a scene from the movie Vision Quest, some strip club talk, 9/11’s affect on relationships, and more. Plus, stay tuned till the end for a very big announcement.
It’s another Mascot Wedding Gold Lion, a short, best-of nugget from a past show. On this short EXTRAsode, we have the first call with Mac’s brother Calvin. The MWS proper will be back next week with a full episode.
Just thought you should know that Bird Drugs, the debut album from Mascot Wedding’s own Mac Blake is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and the Sure Thing Records online store. MWS listeners should definitely check out the bonus track as your other podcast lion, David Jara makes an appearance. Get a preview of the album below.
