In this episode, Candi and Noodle say goodbye to 2019 (2019. lol.) We review the ups and downs of the year and our personal highlights. Breastfeeding wins, filthy Mario slippers, and responsible roller skating are stopping by along with:

- desalination as a super power

- velvet everything

- meaty olives 

- and more! 

It's the holiday party you've been waiting for! You don't have to bring anything and we don't have to clean up. It's a gift for us all![distant jingles]

Wishing you all the happiness this year and always,

Candi and Noodle
