It’s a Boxing Day miracle! As we do every year, we revisit the kingdom of Aldovia (now with much more about its history and geography revealed) to spend time fixing the simple and improbably Christmas-oriented problems of its royal family. This year, Aldovia needs to ratify a treaty with a neighboring fictional kingdom to avert war, and Queen Amber gives birth to a bouncing baby four-month-old.

Because we received some feedback on our Perfect Harmony segment, we dedicate the first part of this episode to discussing exactly what we mean when we say "bad one," and also we chat about Margaret's southern accent. (We do not celebrate Margaret's southern accent as anything other than "very entertaining to listen to.")

 

Next, it's Lodge 49 book club! This week: crushing debt,  anxiety about the future, capitalism, socialism, parasites both metaphorical and literal.

These WILL make sense in context.

This week, you get exactly what's on the tin as we, first among our kind in this novel approach!!, mark the decade's end by reflecting on the decade's #content. Which means:

  • We talk a lot about the challenges of novelty New Year's Eve sunglass design in the 2010s
  • We talk about how TV technology has changed with time!
  • Andrew shares helpful charts and infographics about how TV size has changed and how size and distance from the TV correlate
  • We share some of our favorite shows of the decade, and why!
  • And Margaret cries, OBVIOUSLY! 

We hope you enjoy it, pals. We love you guys.

We return to The Mandalorian, because when we first discussed it, none of us knew about the great gift of Baby Yoda. The problem with this discussion is that Kathryn is the one who wanted to raise it, and then she leaves to deal with a childcare issue, and neither Andrew nor Margaret have seen The Mandalorian. Nevertheless they persist!

 

Following that situation, we return to Lodge 49 for a lively conversation about what happens when you find a corpse in your lodge that is *definitely* not a mummy.
