058 – What did you Enjoy in 2018?

December 31, 2018 twodisableddudes

We on the 2 Disabled Dudes team want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We are excited to be able to give you this episode, our 58th! (to quote Kyle, “Holy cow! I love it!”) We know that we owe a tremendous thank you to you, our listeners, for allowing us to keep going. Without you, this podcast wouldn’t exist! We reflect on what stands out to us in producing this podcast over the past year…

Kyle, eager to share his thoughts first, reflects on the two-part episodes that we produced for the first time this year. Releasing two episodes on one day was a new action for us, and it has had very positive results.

Sean remembers the time that he and Kyle met in Denver for a few days on the unofficial Two Disabled Dudes retreat. It was a great time to hang out and discuss the future of the podcast.

We also want to call attention to the Two Disabled Dudes store. We were excited to release that this year and provide merch to our listeners!

Special thanks this year goes out to Jake Tompkins, our audio producer, and Matt Lafleur who wrote all of this except these very words because he is too humble. We couldn’t do this without you guys and all of your hard work!

We also give our personal reflections on 2018. Kyle reflects on his work with the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance, especially with rideATAXIA, his program that raised over $1 million this year. Special thanks to Jamie Young!

Sean reflects on the couple of days the Dudes were able to spend at Reata Pharmaceuticals – just one of the partners in moving the research needle forward.

Sean’s personal subjects aren’t exciting enough to mention here 🙂

We looking forward to being in your ears next year in 2019!
