Memory Jogger Podcast Episode 2: Halloween

Episode 2 of the new Memory Jogger Podcast is all about our Halloween memories. Jason and Wyatt will be reminiscing about early costumes worn for trick-or-treating, favorite TV specials, and the best (and worst) candy treats that showed up in our bags. You'll also hear stories including Wyatt's homemade costumes and some pranks pulled by Jason in his early teen years.

Before we get into the main topic, we will "break the ice" by discussing a couple retro pop culture headlines. After listening to show, we invite your interaction by leaving a comment with any memories we might have jogged in your brain! We'd love to read back your feedback on the next podcast.
