On this New Year’s Eve, we commemorate the year and podcasts gone by … by doing a podcast completely differently than we’ve done all year! There’s no movie or show to view! Instead, we gathered a few of our podcasters past and future to not just bring you updates on the oldies that we nostalgiamacated this year, but also share our favorite (and not-so-much) movies, series, and trends of 2013. Herewith, the meatiest chunks of our sprawling conversation.
Let’s do everything but like, bigger and heartier and more gravy.
