It’s another Mascot Wedding Gold Lion, a best-of nugget from a past show. This EXTRAsode comes from a Christmas Eve 2011 show. Mac gets three different phone calls from Garth, Comb, and Shaquille O’Neal himself. Enjoy!
Episode 199: Mac and David learn sone bootlegger facts, Garth calls in with a party update, Shaq is on a date, a round of Buy or Sell closes out the year, and perhaps most shockingly of all, this show has a Hearts of Atlantis reference. If that doesn’t knock you on your ass, you don’t have one.

Episode 120: David shares the results of his personal improvement experience. Mac watches fish eating fish. Something funny happens to someone else for once. Another dumb property gets optioned. Garth gets political. Look out, people that live next to rails, because this show is off of them. As was that last sentence.

Membership drive is finally ovah! Now your radio dates can get back to what they… wait, where’s David?
David Jara is on assignment, leaving Mac and Hupp to hold it down. A show that seemed to be going well until KOOP personality Vixie came in and touched the one knob you do not want to touch and we lost eight minutes of the podcast. When the show returns Mac is talking to Garth from Sunken Valley about his donations to KOOP during membership drive. Plus a lot of social media talk. Weird show.
