Friday, February 17, 2012 #620 - The 200th Episode!

The "Joint Chiefs" back in 2005, during the first episode!
"This is going to be a very interesting project. 

When you first look at it, it does sound a little bit strange... you know, an entire radio show dedicated to roller coasters and theme parks.  

But there are shows dedicated to all types of things, like sports.  People talk for hours and hours about sports... why not talk for hours and hours about theme parks?"

This is what I said on the very first episode of our show to explain what set out to be.

We wanted to create a fun, accessible show about theme parks and thrill rides that was for the average fan... but could also be enjoyed by even the most hardcore enthusiast.

Back in 2005, I don't think anyone (including us) expected the show to go past 20 episodes.

Now, here we are seven years later celebrating the 200th!

On this week's show, we take a look back at favorite moments from the past 199 episodes and hear from each of the "Joint Chiefs" who were a part of the show back in 2005.  Mario, Flava and Greg K. return to talk about their thoughts on this milestone.

Also, since our listeners are the heart and soul of it's fitting that we celebrate by  having our annual "Listener Question Show" this week.

As per tradition, the questions are all over the map!  Some are about theme parks and thrill rides, others are about pop culture and some are about Mike, EB and the podcast itself.

We also unveil some big news about the upcoming West Coast trip and count down the days to the entry deadline for the "Reel" Design Contest!

Thanks to each of you for listening and participating in the show. We say it several time this week, because it's the truth - you guys are the show... and we're thankful that you're here.

I'm looking back at your iTunes archives, and I cannot believe that your 'Series Finale' was 5-1/2 years ago! I was one of those fans who took your promise of "something new" to heart, so I never unsubscribed. Months went by with nothing, so I accepted that CoasterRadio was over. And then, the announcement that the show was coming back appeared -- on my birthday! One of the best unintentional birthday presents ever!

I think it's hilariously nerdy that I knew the answer to the trivia question the moment you said it. I didn't even start listening until 10 episodes into the new show haha. Keep it up guys!
