Lets Get Topical

TPGC was up for a Mobbie, the Baltimore Sun new media award.  We ask for votes, but the voting has closed.  If we have released this earlier, we might have won, hopefully next year.  We did take 3rd, and in what was a huge field, that's not bad.

If you are an astute listener, you will notice that this has been released before #78, this is so the Thanksgiving Episode comes out at least in time to hit Thanksgiving on the West Coast.  The next episode will be #78, but we say the number a couple of times, so I had to acknowledge the numbers of the episodes as we said them.
