On the 100th Episode of The Yarn, We Reveal All the Secrets

I usually keep news about the The Yarn over on The Yarn blog, but when you hit the 100 episode mark, it must be shared everywhere.

So how do Colby and I make the 100th episode special? How about a podcast all about what goes on behind the scenes of the podcast? We spill the beans on . . .

. . . how the show began. And how it’s changed.

. . . our secret benefactor that got the show off the ground.

. . . how we didn’t know what the heck we were doing in the beginning (or now?).

. . . how we sustain the show when we’ve got other responsibilities.

. . . the best decision we’ve ever made when it comes to the show.

. . . our favorite episodes.

. . . the authors we were most nervous to interview.

. . . the wackiest moments.

. . . the famous NBA player who “almost” came on the show.

. . . our plans for the future of The Yarn.

And much more. Click here to listen and subscribe below to catch every episode:
