Yes, dear listeners, it’s that time of the year again! This week marks our 5th year of shows, and no one is more surprised at our longevity than we are! Join us for this special episode to hoist a few to ourselves, look back at the year that was, and generally be our silly selves. Thank you to all that have continued to listen to us and support the show – this one’s for you!
