Labor Day Kickoff Special with Oregon's Arica Sears

Heading onto the holiday with some solid beach bevs!

There's no better way to go into the Labor Day Weekend than with a Friday Happy Hour. On this special edition, Peter and Tyler are joined for drinks by Arica Sears, Destination Management Coordinator at Oregon Coast Visitors Association. Arica is in Austin for a wedding, which proved to be our gain at the American Shoreline Podcast Network. We learn a little about her work with the Oregon Coast Visitors Association (more to come on Monday's show) and share reflections on ASPN's final show of our first year. Happy Labor Day Weekend, everybody. Cheers!
