It’s podcast day!

As always, here are some illustrations from our hour or so of silliness:

First of all, to celebrate our thirteenth episode, we snacked on some new treats that will appear on the SmokeHouse menu for Happy Halloween Weekends: Fried Apple Pie Bites and …

Bread Pudding Bites

… Bread Pudding Bites (above). Needless to say, they were consumed with great gusto.

Here are the Bert the Conqueror photos from the “Midwest Mud Fest” episode shoot (which premieres on The Travel Channel on August 2 at 1pm CDT).

To start off, Bert loves Tervis Tumblers with a passion previously unknown to mankind. He scoured our shops to find a different one for each member of his crew. And a Tervis Tumbler managed to photobomb just about every scene shot here over those two days, much to the chagrin of the field producer.

Here’s Bert interviewing Leah and Lauren.

When he discovered he and Lauren share not only an alma mater – but also the school’s “extended program” – they bonded for life.

What did Bert say to get Leah going like this?

And finally, Bert and his new pals:

’nuff said.

As we headed into #HoWoPo Feedback, we chatted about Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin and his love of really bad Halloween jokes:

And … The Foot.

    I love the food at Holiday World and I love Holiday World. I have not been this year at all and would love to take my grandchildren. They all love Holiday World and it makes them so happy that they talk about it for weeks. Thank you for making a clean, safe and fun park for the family to enjoy!
