So here it is. The second part of our 2016 holiday episode. It’s… out there.  We cover a spectrum of topics. Gay love. Cliffs. The relative rapiness of a Christmas song. It’s a complicated situation, but, I’m sure you’ll find the humor in it all. I hope. 

Next episode is our Year In Review episode! That’s right, we’re so done with reading. Come back to see what we had to say about the horrible dumpster fire that was 2016.

You’ve waited so long. You may not even know it, but you’ve been waiting for this moment. We’re happy to bring you part one of our annual holiday episode, the Booked. Holiday Office Party Happy Hour! While it’s technically over an hour long, we don’t think you’ll hold it against us. So what is a Holiday Office Party? Well we talk about a couple of Krampus movies, some holiday traditions, smoking crack, getting sexy with cousins. You know. Typical holiday stuff. OH! And we do some gift exchanging. Let us know what you think, and if you think this one is crazy, wait for part two, where the booze really starts to kick in!

Next episode is part two of our Booked. Holiday Office Party! I think we’re gonna call it Last Call.
