    Crash Course in Awesome Reunion Special

    Crash Course in Awesome Reunion Special

    My god.  It’s happened.
    The incantations from the Necronomicon were read aloud.
    The blood sacrifices succeeded.
    The stars were right. 
    And David Lo Pan married a woman with green eyes. 
    Bryan and Ricky have risen from the inky depths to do a nearly 2 hour Reunion episode for all you fine folks!
    In the two years since finishing Crash Course in Awesome the guys have received a steady stream of messages, check ins and requests to return… to the point where it actually worked!  Join them as they re-learn podcasting and also catch you up with what they’ve been up to since the finale and what sort of stuff they’re into now!  Hear them discuss world travel, super powers and time travel! And lastly listen in as they give you listeners some updates on popular topics from previous episodes!
    You guys asked Ricky and Bryan to come back in some form or another so give’er a listen and enjoy!  (Or don’t!  Everyone’s rusty! Maybe this’ll be one of those “be careful what you wish for” scenarios, who knows!)

    This is it folks, not only the final chapter in the Survival Series but this is episode #150, the final official episode of Crash Course in Awesome.  One last time Bryan puts Ricky through a series of real (and not so real) survival scenarios and Ricky has to fight his way through them to the final showdown with his tormentor: Bryan.   It’s a no holds barred slugfest to the end so tune in and enjoy!

    (And just a heads up- you don’t NEED to have heard the previous episodes in this series to understand this episode but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to go back and give them a listen to pick up on some references!)

Really is a Crash Course In Awesome

I’m about 5 years late in writing this but this is a hands down 5/5 star podcast. Very funny, very informative. Even though there are no new episodes, still listen.

Literally the best podcast ever

These guys are awesome, the flow is great, their voices aren't annoying AT ALL (big plus), they're funny but keep the topic going and they stay true to the name...always awesome!
