ENTER TO WIN AN “ALEXA” ECHO DOT!

November 29, 2017
WIN AN "ALEXA"!
Producer Ken bought himself an Alexa Echo Dot a couple of months ago and suddenly realized this was a device he never knew he needed until he had one. Since then, he gave one as an early Christmas present to Host Casey who, in turn, loves his Alexa just as much. SO, Producer Ken decided that everyone should have one! But since he can't give one to everyone in the world, he decided to give one as a prize to one lucky winner who enters the TALKING AUDIOBOOKS END OF SEASON SWEEPSTAKES!
 
HOW DO YOU ENTER?
Well, the details will appear on this page when the next episode debuts on December 1st.  THEN, every entry that comes in before December 13th will go into the drawing for a free Alexa Echo Dot! SO, be sure to listen to this Friday's new episode and watch this page for details on how to enter.
The winner's name will be announced on the December 15th episode, which is our last episode of season two.
