News Decorators Community Party Revamp - October 16, 2020Shoutout to Ron Goodwin with Goodwin Graphics, Cohasset, Mass. We had a chance to chat for a bit earlier this week and he said he’s a regular listener of the 2 Regular Guys!! We appreciate you, Ron!! And, Aaron and I love to hear from Regulators. Not a lot of in-person interaction, but reach out to us!All our listeners who watch the Walking Dead, like me, know that after every episode is another show called the Talking Dead, where nerds like me discuss what happened in that night’s episode. One of the segments of every episode of the Talking Dead is a memorial to all those who died during that episode. So, as the 2 Regular Guys we should also reflect on Covid just like the Walking Dead, and remember not business lost but all the new podcasts that were started, and then suddenly died already… BECAUSE IT’S HARD AND IT’S WORK PEOPLE!! Just ask E-Rich!Dad Joke: From Wade Knarr, StickerDad.comWhat do you call a pig that does Karate?A Pork Chop 2020 REGGIE Categories Notes about this year:We are trying to really improve this year.
