As the last show before the holidays start (but don't worry, we'll have new shows next week!), Dana and Dennis talked about the past year, how we and our staff are making it through, our holiday plans, and more.  Dana's "I Dare You To" selection was for all of us to re-watch Parks and Rec, which Dennis wants you to watch (probably for the first time) Ancient Aliens.

Dana and Dennis were graced with the presence of past-interviewees (and one of their staff) today for a pre-holiday special episode.  We talked about 2020, how we're all holding up, holiday plans, and more with Tammera Shinar, David Shook, Ken Lira, and Brittney Blakely.  Many of them offered up great "I Dare You To Selections" (Dana suggests we all take naps, Tammera suggests you play some Professor Noggin's trivia card games, David suggested "spicing up" your hot cocoa with peppermint twist vodka, and Ken wished everyone to stay staff and well).

TECHNICAL NOTE:  There is a small dropout in sound around 20 minutes into the show.  I had an issue affecting the Zoom connection to the guests so I needed to splice together two audio files.
