Wait, What? Ep. 67.2: Claus

Although I usually wait until our podcasts hit iTunes before I create the SavCrit entries, I think this site is going to have Ep. 67 before iTunes does, for maybe as much as a day.  So we invite you to curl up around a nice fire and listen to us wax both naughty and nice (oh man that imagery but it's too late now just keep forging ahead with me) right before Xmenmas.

Oh, and in case you're interested in what our gift list pics were  and don't want to listen to our nattering voices, I've included the rough version of the list after the jump.  Feel free to check it out and let us know what we've missed!
