A Roast and a Toast to Bill Sweeney and 200 Episodes of The Wicked Theory Podcast

This past week The Wicked Theory Podcast celebrated its 200th Episode with the Roast of William Sweeney, Esq. And after a night of laughs and looking back, Bill dropped a bomb about changes coming to the show.

And while I am on the inside, I don’t want to speculate about the future of the show, I want to take this opportunity to say some very nice things about The Wicked Theory Podcast, but more specifically it’s host with the most, Bill Sweeney.

Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding is an interesting and superbly written film.

I, for one, applaud them for their efforts. B-movies can, and should be, fun and enjoyable for what they are, but there is a limit. First, what is a B-movie?
