With Paula away on vacation, the #PodSquad had a new host this week: Me! (Hence the title “The one where they all went Rogue.”)
I had a lot of goals for this episode: create a new game, don’t screw up, and don’t screw up.
I succeeded in creating a new game.
Luckily, accountant Tiffany Leonard joined us to tell us about the “most boring” job in a theme park, and the most exciting job in accounting.
We talked about the opening of Happy Halloween Weekends, and the return of our favorite special menu items like the buffalo chicken sandwich.
Tiffany told us about her homemade Halloween costumes for her kids, and they are impressive to say the least:
…that owl costume…
We couldn’t remember if we were able to post the video of Dad (Will Koch) on the Colbert Report back in 2006. We can! Here’s that video:
We learned a lot of ways to prepare pierogis in preparation for National Pierogi Day on Oct. 8. For the record, this is what pierogies look like:
Matt got a new nickname…
We received a gift of brown sugar and maple bacon seasoning from Emma—one of our loyal listeners. We’re going to use this for our holiday bacon (you’ll have to ask Tiffany).
Marcus Lemonis, host of the CNBC show “The Profit,” tweeted quite the offer:
I’ll be back and want to ride the rides. Let’s make it happen. I’ll rent the park out on weekday for a kids day on me. https://t.co/DARKp83O8Z

The Coaster Crew got a little cheesy (get it?):
We can’t keep stringing you along. Though it may be cheesy, we’re celebrating anyway. It’s #NationalStringCheeseDay! Who says you can’t play with your food? The only thing missing is a Big Red fountain! #HoWoPo @HolidayWorld pic.twitter.com/jdMkyqY5xS

And then they got downright comical:
We’re dipping our toes in a new medium for #NationalComicBookDay! You’ll Marvel at our daring adventures from the west coast to DC. We’ve really got a shot at being a Dark Horse…uh, Foot…in the industry. (Not) coming soon to a @HolidayWorld gift shop near you! #HoWoPo pic.twitter.com/QbhzB2JAEU

We closed with the new game: “Not my Name,” and I concluded that hosting is a fun, but difficult job. That said…
PAULA, PLEASE COME BACK!*
