Episode 383 – The Christmas Specials Special f/ RJ and Ian from HARK

We got a letter from the government. The Special Bureau of Specials, to be exact. And they said that the only way we could keep doing Christmas specials every year was to watch some other Christmas specials and discuss them. So that’s what we did! Luckily, RJ Edwards and Ian Holliday, the hosts of the HARK! podcast, dropped by to help us out. Merry Christmas!
