Joe and Bill break a record for number of voicemails played on the podcast with no fewer than ten separate callers. Crosstrading is this week’s topic on The Trade Federation Podcast.
With ten callers, episode 66 feels a bit like a telethon, and Joe and Bill get to sit back and let the voicemails drive the episode. The poll covers crosstrading, so the hosts and callers discuss sports apps, Walking Dead, and general crosstrade strategy.

The Trade Federation #66
Trade Federation Podcast Episode 66 emphasizes the need, with the current SWCT economy, for crosstrading to become a regular part of everyone’s collecting. Callers set a new record with no fewer than ten voicemails.
Sean, Joe B., Martine, and Isaac present lots of interesting insights on crosstrading. Billy reminds us of the epic free packs and free credits giveaway by Topps that caught us off guard at the end of last week’s episode. CurtNeedsARide does his best to stump the hosts while expressing his dislike for the marathon-specific packs. JohnTLewis, moderator of the SWCT subreddit, presents the official word on all the negative threads. Stefan poses an interesting possibility with Open Editions. And you won’t want to miss the tip of the week from DAnderson, it’s a good one.
As always, thanks for listening, happy hunting, and may the force be with you!

Born in 1976, Bill Drewnowski grew up surrounded by Star Wars, the likely reason for his love of a great story. Now a father living in Boston, Massachusetts, Bill teaches high school English, including courses in science fiction and fantasy. In his spare time Bill co-hosts The Trade Federation podcast, dedicated to the Topps Star Wars Card Trader mobile app. Bill enjoys collecting books, posters, action figures, trading cards (including a huge Magic the Gathering obsession), and of course all things Star Wars. His favorite book is Moby Dick by Herman Melville. You can follow Bill on Twitter and Instagram @LostStarWars.
