Episode 1: Kevin Allison, Part 1
First Episode! Part one of our hilarious, honest and heartfelt conversation with the talented Kevin Allison, host of the popular live show and podcast Risk! where people share uncensored true stories they never thought they'd dare to share. He also talks about his legendary sketch group The State, who made one of my favorite TV shows of all time.  Since we talked, Kevin has become a sponsor, advisor and booster of our podcast! Our first ad in this episode is one Kevin made about both his podcast and ours. To say we're honored is a wild understatement. Hosted by photographer Rich Wexler, and MC/costumed karaoke host Dr Thunder. Rich is hosting a special Muppet-themed live virtual event on Saturday to coincide with our first episode's release, and his and Jim Henson's birthdays. 9am-1pm ET, check VintageAnnalsArchive.com or our Instagram @VintageAnnalsArchive for link and details. Thank you so much to all the people who've helped us in this adventure so far, especially the guests who've taken the time to share their stories.
