Is it the holiday season or the end of the world? You decide while listening to our traditional annual Christmas show with special guest co-host James Arnold Taylor. Plus, Steve Sansweet joins us to chat about his latest literary Star Wars stocking stuffer, The Ultimate Action Figure Collection. And, of course, Uncle Moralo and his book club stop by to spread holiday cheer courtesy of The Clone Wars' Stephen Stanton. All this plus Black Santa, Bilbo Baggins, and mugs full o' nog!
