Flood Brothers Disposal presents The Skinny and Houli show where the guys are a little confused about this weather. The first guests are Barry and Wyn Sullivan who tell us all about their son and brother, Declan, and the Declan Drumm Sullivan fund set up in his honor. All proceeds go to Horizons for Youth, an organization that focuses on providing support and help for families who can’t afford their children’s education. They have their annual event, ‘No ordinary evening’, coming up on April 23rd at Navy Pier. Tickets can be purchased online. When the guys learn that Wyn is a First Year Med student, they ask for some psychiatric help. That ship sailed a long time ago for Skinny and Houli!

  1. Bob Engels says

    As a long time fan of the show I just have one complaint: I can’t begin to express my anger and utter disappointment with this guy Almquist who was just on your show. Where did you find this guy?

  2. He told us he was a very good friend of Bob Engels so we let him on the show, boy was that a mistake!
