  1. Emily, I’m not going to Approve your (highly complimentary) comment, but only because you give away two major plot points! Glad you liked it, though.

  2. I had a fit of giggles while listening to this podcast!
    “Everyone understands the rules? After the creature has been allowed a three minute head start…there are NO MORE RULES.”

    “Santa Claus, gazing directly into the crosshairs of the Baron’s rifle sight, calmly removed his large red hat, smiled knowingly, and pointed a finger…at the Sasquatch.”
