Guest: Kathy and Steve remember their favorite moments and guests from the last 6 years and announce the winners of our Giveaway!

Our very first show aired on November 4, 2006 with guest Lexie Barnes.

Arguably our most popular guest, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the Yarn Harlot, made her first appearance on Show #11 in 2007 with a unique storage solution.

One of our favorite moments happened during Show #129 at the live broadcast for the Tent Sale in 2009 – Alpacas in Suburbans!

When Stacy Charles made his first appearance he was worried he wouldn’t have enough to talk about to fill the show, and Jared Flood‘s first interview may have happened as he dashed between classes.

Some of our more frequent guests have included Melissa Morgan Oakes, Carol Sulcoski, Betsy Perry, and Andra Asars. Hi Andra!

We had some wonderful feedback through the Survey. One of the questions we asked, “If you were going to be on the show for the day who would you interview?”, yielded some surprising answers.

You’d like us to talk to everyone from Betty White and Julia Roberts to Martha Stewart. There were also quite a few requests for Elizabeth Zimmerman. While an interview with her is no longer a possibility, we could certainly talk with her daughter, Meg Swanson.
