321: A BIT OF AUDIO COAL IN YOUR HOLIDAY STOCKING

Ok, look. It’s the holiday season. And while we all try to be good, if you’re like me, you stumble a bit. We probably all deserve a bit of coal in our holiday stockings.

Yep, that’s a thing HB made. Must have lost a bet. And now it’s a thing for us to talk about.
