Oh Takeaway,

How I was thrilled with the debate chats (especially since lkike amazing goddess writers would just show up asking questions. I spent 4 debates worth of chats to try and tell author k.b. how much i loved her work, and it finally happened on election night. Being a (huge) fan of Mr. Hockenberry, I was delighted that he mentioned my comment in the first hour of the first day's show...

so like when you gonna make the takeaway swag. My obama shirt will be passe by March, and a public radio shirrt exudes "I'm hip AND have a brain"...just sayin.

Happy holidays to the crazy wonderful crew and to all the people who've stuck with the show.

(hoping to find some way to have either my laptop or some other device automatically stream the show at 6 am so i dont need to wake up and try and figure out which stream works every weekday morning)
