You’re 50?! SHUT UP! – Backstage with Berni & Phil – Episode 50

This wouldn’t be a The SHUT UP Show if we didn’t spend at least 5 minutes going on about how awesome our fellow podcaster, friend and former guest Srini Rao (BlogcastFM) is. Congrats on your new book hitting #1 on Amazon! Srini, you now owe us $1 kagillion dollars #JustSayin.

By the title of this episode you can probably tell that Phil and my pretty baby, The SHUT UP Show, has just turned 50! In celebration of publishing our 50 episodes today, we have also launched the audio version of our show in a podcast. You can find the new Podcast page here and, in about a day or so, the show’s podcast feed will also be available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Blackberry. Now you can finally listen to us right from your smart phone!

This episode is a lot longer than our usual show length but, dog gone it, it was worth every minute to mention our amazing guests from episodes 26 through 49 and to let you in the know about all the exciting things to come for the show. Here’s to 50 more!!

I have two choices. Continue to cry, grieve and struggle. Or become the best possible deaf person I could be. @DeafMom #shutupshow (click to tweet)
