It’s been a little while since we updated you on the gang behind Craig the Genie, the television series that Joey Richter and his friends are currently funding through Kickstarter. Hopefully, you’ve been following their progress through their daily updates on the Kickstarter page, but if you haven’t let’s catch you up. Behind the “Read More” is everything you’ve missed, plus all the deets on tonight’s Craig The Genie Telethon:
First, you should know that Brandon Blanks, Jordan Kelley, Patrick Mclaughlin, Andrew James Parkhill, and Joey Richter (the CTG crew) are now going by Cool Pool Party. Check out and subscribe to their YouTube channel.
Over the last few weeks Cool Pool Party has released some old videos as well as a trailer for an upcoming project, Girl Friend. Watch them:

Last Wednesday the team posted a 30 minute podcast video, you can watch that here:
In case I haven’t thrown enough video footage of these guys at you, here’s a video in which they explain more about what they’re hoping to do with Craig the Genie and introduce themselves in a more professional fashion:
Make sure that you’re staying up to date via the Kickstarter updates and following their social media. Craig the Genie is on facebook, @craigthegenie on twitter, and craigtheblog on tumblr. There are some great storyboard sketches, fan art, and a whole lot more content on their various pages.
If that wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with this crew and throw your money at them to fund Craig the Genie, good news, here’s some more information:
Today is “Podcast Wednesday” for the CTG crew, I am personally happy to announce that they will be joining me live on air again over on Side B Radio, as well as broadcasting live via google hangout on their YouTube channel for a CRAIG THE GENIE TELETHON TAKE OVER from 8-10pm eastern (that’s 5-7pm pacific)! On top of everything else they are doing, tonight the team is devoting two hours to the fans and hoping to raise some additional funds on Kickstarter by way of wacky antics, stories, games, challenges, etc. There are benchmark challenges for reaching certain goals during the show, one of these guys may even shave his head! You do NOT want to miss this. I provided the link to the YouTube channel above, but if you can’t do video, or you want to hear music tonight as well, plug in to Side B Radio on www.live365.com/stations/sidebradio. You u can chat with us both on google or in the Side B chatroom. If you have questions and/or want to participate in the hangout, tweet to us tonight using the hashtag #CTGTelethonTakeover!
