Episode 44 – Mt. Rushmore of the Mt. Rushmore Podcast’s Season One Mt. Rushmores

Let’s face it: 2016’s been a nightmare. We’re sure it’s just a coincidence that the worst year in recent memory happened at the same time we launched the first year of the podcast. Hopefully, we were able to provide you with a little light entertainment to give you a few hours of respite from the never ending drum beat of suck that this year became.

It’s a VERY SPECIAL EPISODE this week as we look back at our personal Rushmores of things that happened in the show over the past 12 months (roughly). Take a listen to find out if your favorite moment made the cut.

Episode 43 – Must Have Christmas Toys

There’s no joy like waking up on Christmas morning to find out that Santa had brought you the perfect present; similarly, nothing is more disappointing than getting Go-Bots when all of your other friends got kick-ass Transformers, or being told that Santa “ran out” of Cabbage Patch Kids so you’ll have to settle for a Raggedy Ann.

Episode 40 – Nonverbal Sidekicks

Holy switcheroo, Batman! Usually, it’s Michael and Richard debating the merits of their choices for a certain topic with Jeff serving as judge. But not this week as Jeff has some HOT TAKES that demand to be heard – even if the subjects aren’t.

In an unprecedented move, Jeff and Michael switch places. Now it’s Richard vs. Jeff giving their Rushmore of Nonverbal Sidekicks. Who will win? Only Michael knows for sure.
