On Saturday July 8, 2017 Bart and I set out to do 12 Hours of Boom on our Youtube Channel. One guest every hour for 45 minutes with a 15 minute break, for 12 straight hours.

During our Live Stream (#318) with Scotch Trooper and Highland Park, we discussed the top 5 twelve year old review, and the fan favorite 12 year old picks.
