Put on your ugliest holiday sweater, because baby it's cold outside (and creepy inside) and we're singing carols, reviewing A Very Murray Christmas, talking about audiobooks, Martin Short, Harry Potter, refurbishing Epcot rides, and even doing a little Christmas shopping. Get ready to sing and swing, baby!

The 100th episode in which Bart reflects on over two years of shows, the changes that have come, and the future ahead, before recapping Thanksgiving shenanigans, giving a brief review of The Good Dinosaur (which veers off into a memory of an obscure 1988 action movie called Shakedown) and finally answers some listener questions, including which Hogwarts house he belongs in.

A surprise, slightly tipsy bonus pod because a few different listeners have said they enjoy listening while running. A couple are running in the Epcot Food & Wine "Wine and Dine Half" so I go over new menus at Disney and Universal for a special treat runners might enjoy treating themselves with! Sadly I don't succeed!!!
