    Great show! It was a lot of fun meeting Steven Jason and Lora Wallace. It was incredible. Mardi Gras is my favorite event.

  • Good job guys! Listened to part of this on my way to work this morning and will listen to the rest on my way home.

    Thanks Dusty. Darren had an awesome time at the event and hopefuly a lot of people will be tempted to the event on the strength of Darren’s review.
