Dave pulls out all the stops on this Christmas edition, which includes a remarkable interview with Peter Robinson wherein he discusses everything from how he met William F. Buckley Jr. and came to work as a Special Assistant to President Reagan, to what Christmas is like in the Robinson household (spoiler alert — it includes Peter singing tenor). Rob Long called in with a very poignant Christmas greeting, followed by Dave settling in for a memorable conversation with a fellow retired military veteran and dear friend, Bob Lee, whom Dave has known for some 32 years now. Oh yes, and Alphonse Fontenot makes an appearance to tell The Cajun Night Before Christmas. You may be laughing one moment and getting a lump in your throat the next, but we guarantee you’ll enjoy every single minute of this show.

    Love this podcast. I will play the Cajun Night Before Christmas for my son so he can work on his accent and start reading it to his son. Oh and of course – Geaux Tigers!

    All evidence to the contrary, I was not actually drunk during the production of that podcast.

    Great job Dave!

    Now about that squid…

    Look Bob, if you weren’t drunk, you’ve nobody to blame but yourself. You could have popped the seal on that bottle anytime, but nooooooo! You didn’t. No worries. I’ll have a drink for you! What are friends for!

    My family also had Santa visit and opened gifts on Christmas Eve. That was a carryover from my father’s childhood, with his German mother. I am told it is a German tradition.

    Brussels Sprouts with a little bit of butter

     Delicious.

    Star Fruit is ok. Not worth the price, but not bad.

    Brussels Sprouts – yech! Star fruit no opinion. My family too opened presents on Christmas Eve. I think of it as more a Protestant thing myself since as a Catholic we now open presents on Christmas Day if not sometime in the Octave or even Epiphany depending on when the family can get together. For awhile we tried to save a least one present for Epiphany but that was a spotty tradition at best.

    I prefer my Brussels sprouts deep fried in bacon fat.

    Fun episode. Merry Christmas, Dave!

    Thanks for the kind comments, folks. And thanks to @robertelee, @peterrobinson, and @roblong for being part of the proceedings. This show was so much fun to put together and it’s rewarding beyond words that you all enjoyed it. And for the record, Brussels Sprouts are best enjoyed when served on someone else’s plate. Merry Christmas folks!
