This is an ASMR episode. It might relax you. And it might make you have to pee. It will undoubtedly make you laugh. It's a jibber-jabber in the old school DP style. It's got regular ASMR. It's got drag queen shoes ASMR. It's got dog-hocking-up-a-loogie ASMR. And it's meta. And it's got tips for saving money. Why wouldn't you listen?
Remember that time Paul had a blind date and a hot redhead showed up at his door?
Also, what do Icarus, Sisyphus, and George Jefferson have in common? Plus a call from an old friend (hint: he's 130,000 years old and of the pachyderm persuasion).
This one almost speaks for itself. Do NOT skip the beginning. Plus, an update on the 2019 Christmas Special and the 2019 Halloween Special - with a twist.

As promised, we have a flashback episode. Drawing on a hilarious conversation about death, the guys introduce a short clip from 2015. David Bowie, Glenn Frye (sp?), who's next? Who was next? In the wrap up, Paul provides a spoiler-free and basically content-free non-teaser for the Halloween story he's working on.

September 1862. General Lee and the Confederacy were having their way with the Northern Army. Lee's next move was to invade the North through relatively friendly Maryland on his way to Pennsylvania for a decisive battle that would bring the Union to the bargaining table. His bold plan to split his forces and reunite days later were spelled out in Special Orders 191. It might have worked. And it might have changed the course of the war and the course of history. But something went terribly wrong. Or terribly right if you're the North.

After the break: Paul has more ado. Springfield Township: did the people shape the landscape or vice versa? Young transgender Steve. The next halloween special. Teasing a new segment about customer service.

In case you missed it, and even if you didn't, here is the edited version of the 2018 End-of-Year LIVE show. The best part is that Steve's lovely bride, Constance, joined the guys.
Prepare to laugh. This one is downright hilarious.
Do you wear underwear? Why or why not?
"The Talk" - when did your parents have the talk with you? Or did they?
Were you bullied? When did it stop? Why? Steve just figured out that people stopped bullying him when he grew a few inches and a few dozen pounds.
Best Christmas gift ever?
Best early 80s game console? Intellivision or Atari?
What's in store for DP in 2019? Including, but not limited to, the debut of the 80s REtro-Actio Radio Play
In the penultimate episode of 2018, Steve gets in a story-telling zone. What you don't know is the guys recorded about 20 minutes of complete crap that you will never hear. Fortunately, the dog ate the part we didn't like.
Steve's drinking Bud Light, Uncle Karl is drinking Hi-C, and the guys are taking on a third partner on the show. Listen to find out who.
Next week: Live Christmas!
It's not the length of the jib, it's the depth of the jab. This week, the boys went short, but deep. Steve talks about the long-known but little practiced moment of zen when coming home from anything. The guys also talk about what it means to be in the zone or in a flow state and the awesome things that can happen when you're there. It's funny.
When George Price woke up on the morning of November 11, 1918, he did not know the war would end that day. So he did his job. Another soldier a few miles away started his day not know the war would end. So he, too, did his job. Fate would bring them together that day in a way so tragic, yet so ordinary that it is a perfect way to honor these men and all men and women who fight and die in war - not necessarily for the greater causes trumpeted by the generals and politicians, but for the men and women in the trenches and foxholes around them.
Thanks to Pauly V for posting the sounds of the final minutes of WW1, which inspired this episode. Special thanks to Annie Guilbeau for lending her talented voice. And thanks to each and every soldier around the world who fights and dies for honor and duty and for their comrades in arms.
Paul and Steve hope you enjoy this tweener episode. Please share, like, and leave comments (or hit us up on #thepage).
