Episode #256: He Prefers Christopher, I Know That

Out of nowhere, here’s a Christmas-themed episode. It just happened. We should have done it in July instead, and maybe we’ll do that too. But for now here’s a Christmas thing on Christmas Eve. Too conventional for you? We hope not. We wouldn’t waste anyone’s time, especially not yours. Please give it a whirl. A happy joyride. A merry spin.
