Did you know that they sold bicycles from catalogs? And di you know that they are, like, RIDICULOUSLY cheap?

Neither did we. But Clyde knows. And Clyde took full advantage!

With the help of his trusty dog, Dawg, Clyde gives riding a bike a try!

Rachel and I already know how to ride bikes. Completely. No training wheels for us anymore. No sir. Um....

WELL EITHER WAY WE DEFINITELY KNOW HOW TO PODCAST, YES WE ARE PODCASTING NOW HOORAY!!

Rachel and I are back to our old tricks! And by tricks, we mean reading awesomely adorable children's books!

This week's picture book is NOT a picture book. Except that it is. And isn't? It's confusing.

The important thing is that Rachel know about baking and watching TV, and Sam actually listened to an episode of this very podcast. NO WAY!!

And this little book was just a strange journey into what the joy of reading can really be. It was great.

Episode #150

It's our SESQUICENTENNIAL!!

That means it's our 150th episode. And sure, with lost episodes, and bonus episodes, we may have hit this a couple weeks ago, but this is the podcast with the NUMBER 150!!!

So we had to do something special! We were joined by special guests from across the Nerdist School Network: Mike Sellari (no twitter), Chris Lord (@Lordopher), and Ryan Mogge (@rmogge)!!

And we had a BLAST!!

Super fun hanging out with all these cool people talking about a kinda adorable book. We learned a valuable lesson about whether or not to let birds operate heavy machinery, and had a great time while doing it.

So if you enjoy this episode, you should give each of THEIR podcasts a listen! We promise that they are all amazing! Mike has the This on That podcast, Chris does the Timm Talk Podcast (which I was just a guest on), and Ryan has the Nerdist School classic HELLMOUTHY!!

So check that out and we'll see you at number 200!
