I had the great pleasure of hosting a bunch of radio shows last week with Cy Kellet and Kaylyn Green. It was a ton of fun! If you are wondering about the post title, at one point during the week we discussed potential names for the show and Kaylyn and the Knuckleheads was the consensus choice. Check out the audio below and I think you will understand why 🙂
