Happy holidays, Goosebuddies! It's a new year! Hopefully we're all still alive and the robots haven't taken us yet! Speaking of being alive... the boys have dug into a Goosebumps: Most Wanted tale about holiday undead (that really don't do much other than guilt trip ya). Preceded by an opening prologue that is the darkest thing RL has ever written, we read the tale of Kate Welles who just wants the lead in a play that would never be allowed on stage, let alone in high school. And Chad falls on his sword arguing that the production is a stealth Halloween story. There's sorta some playing around with the idea of "Christmas spirits" and a missed opportunity to play off A Christmas Carol, but otherwise this is a holiday book we guess.

Also the boys talk weird church experiences, eating communion bread for fun, and discovering the dark joy of Victorian Christmas cards. Enjoy the episode. Merry Slinksmas!

Note: Apologies for the weird audio on Chad, buddies. He had to record this in his parents' basement while visiting in Indiana and as we all know audio just sounds different in the midwest.
