Happy Holidays to all! For the final episode of 2020, in what’s been an absolutely bonkers world, Mike and Justin take a moment to sit down and enjoy the holidays together (socially distanced, of course.) What follows is a celebration of winter and holiday music of the video game variety, discussions about getting dat nut, Prehistoric Turtlesaurus’, and of course…gift giving. The guys unwrap gifts they’ve given to each other, all while closing out the year with a smile and some fun tracks that really get you into the holiday season.
