November 2021 Party in the Back Podcast

Wreaths Across America’s Sean Sullivan helps us find the right tone for Military Appreciation night and Rob Wicall joins the Party to look discuss Kraken, Tacos and Wicked Big things.

This month on Party in the Back we party with Rob Wicall and Sean Sullivan.

Sean works with Wreaths Across America. This group honors thousands of veterans each year by placing wreaths at their graves and with a Mobile Education Exhibit that advances their Remember – Honor – Teach mission. Sean explains the value of finding the right tone for your Military Appreciation Night as well as how Wreaths Across America can help.

Then Rob Wicall joins Jon Cudo to talk about the 2021 Best of Awards, the value of wicked big props and recent guest on Plus. Then Cudo and Wicall talk through recent Water Cooler Moments from the Seattle Kraken and Fresno Grizzlies. Plus Rob feigns outrage over a non-Texas-based team daring to claim to have the best Tacos.
