Well, This Is A First

There’s nothing particularly special about this episode aside from it being the last regular episode for this shitty year…and a couple of mini-reviews from Brian.  It does, however, mark the first time in over nine years we had to skip a scheduled recording.  Still a damn impressive run, if we do say so ourselves.

Oh, and you don’t want to miss this show’s Crew Nation donor, a guest with a very special connection to the show.
