Expect only awesome
From the co-creator of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd, which itself was a hysterical time traveling romp through history, comes an awesome new show. I've seen nothing from Grant Baciocco that isn't fantastic.
I can't wait!
Grant Baciocco produces fun and professional shows that sneak in just enough education... you're kids will have so much fun that they won't even know they're learning! The common chorus in the car every morning is, "Dad, is there a new Dr. Floyd episode out yet?" Now with this new series, we'll have double the fun for our rides to school!!! I can't wait!
We've just heard two promos so far, but I'm really excited to here the show! (Perhaps it can help me fill in the gaps between Dr. Floyd Episodes)
Grant Baciocco is a brilliant writer and producer, I can only imagine greatness coming from this podcast!
