Well, after 26 months of being vigilant—and almost a little crazy—my entire family tested positive for Covid.

The good news is that we got it all at the same time so we didn’t have to isolate ourselves from one another.

The better news is that everyone was asymptomatic, except me. I went down hard. I had a colleague tell me I looked “wrecked” when I finally showed up for a Zoom meeting six days into it.

But it meant that pretty much everything was put on hold, including the Spin Sucks podcast.

Last week was supposed to have been a big hoopla for our 200th episode and, instead, listeners were met with silence.

I couldn’t even bring myself to record a, “Hey folks, there’s no new episode this week, but we’re working on something very cool for you to celebrate the 200th episode! Stay tuned until next Tuesday!”

Would have been really easy to record that, right? Wrong!

We also moved houses right before we went down and I had the added benefit of having no idea where my microphone was.

Covid plus life in boxes made for a hard week for poor Gini.

The Spin Sucks Podcast: 200 Episodes

So here we are…technically at the 201st week of the Spin Sucks podcast, but only the 200th episode.

And, because it’s such a big deal, we’re going to celebrate in a way only Spin Sucks can do…with a special guest from the one and only Spin Sucks intern.

Rather than transcribe the interview, which isn’t nearly as fun, you have to listen to it.

And there you have it, folks! Out of the mouths of babes.
