Most of this episode is spent talking about music. I discuss my top ten favorite albums of 2017 and several "honorable mentions" that didn't quite make the list. Among the latter, I spend a lengthy amount of time talking about the latest and sadly LAST solo album from Gord Downie, "Introduce Yerself." After all the music talk, I touch on a few quick subjects, including my thoughts on the season finale of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, a couple of notes on the WWE, and reviews of four weird, random sodas I bought from Cracker Barrel. Throughout the show, I also play snippets of "music only" mixes of several tracks off of my upcoming solo album "It Could Be Worse," which will be out in 2017, and we close out the show with a special Christmas gift for my dad.
