150 The Final Show

This is episode 150, the Team Shenanigans Podcast's Final Show. We recorded it in front of a live internet audience - a link to the YouTube video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDGKlYFI6V0. Caution: it was not censored or edited in any way, so it may not be appropriate for all audiences. This podcast has been edited and is safe for all audiences.

Many thanks to all of our listeners over the last three years. The podcast is coming to an end, due to the incredible time commitment it takes to schedule, record and produce these episodes.
