    Special thanks to Mega Millions Draw Host, John Crow for hanging out with us and talking about all things Family Vacationer. John is a super interesting person and is, himself, well traveled. He still hasn't made either of us rich by calling our Mega Millions numbers. Oh well


    We had a lot of ideas about what to do with our 100th episode, but this was the perfect chance to talk about why we started this in the first place, some of our favorite episodes and where we'd like to take the show moving forward. Thank you to all of our amazing guests! You've made this show a blast to create every week. Most especially thank you to our listeners!
