It’s New Year’s! Let’s Argue!

As our final act of 2017, we now present to you our collective Top 30 Albums of 2017!  Feel free to let us know your favorites – or argue about ours – in the comments!

We also want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who listen to this podcast and support us in any way. It is not always easy making keeping up with this show alongside our day jobs and living the rest of our lives, but in the end, we do really enjoy it all.  We truly appreciate all of you who listen, whether you are in a state next door or a country on the other side of the world.

We hope you had a great 2017 and we wish you an even better 2018!
