#192 – The Christmas Show Merry Christmas

The Christmas Show Merry Christmas

Tis’ the Christmas season, and it’s time for Tom Sabella, the founder, and executive producer, along with Bob Bender, the host of the show, to finally get together in the studio and reflect on this past year. As we’re coming up to our 200th episode early in 2022, we also talk about how the show started, what it was like for Bob to take over in 2017, and how the podcast had changed since its inception nearly 15 years ago.

Along with this back and forth conversation between Tom and Bob, we also play some Christmas selections from guests we’ve had on the show over the past few years. We hope you enjoy our little Christmas gift.
