58: Happy(ish) Holidays III

In our final episode of the season we are talking about... The Holidays. Which are a time of reflection and anticipation. Of looking back at what we did... and what was done to us. We will hear from comedian and writer Alyssa Limperis and the shine-it-up Holiday letter she wrote the year her dad died from brain cancer.

And we will ask listeners what they took from 2018, what they're looking forward to in 2019, and what it is about hoping for something that can be so scary.
