In this Episode 23, Anna and Shereen truly start to lose their minds as they try to figure out what this podcast episode is really about. They decide to go the casual-personal-talk route instead of getting deep in to the news; since it's the holidays they've decided to keep it light as much as they can. They talk about how Josh Brolin and Daniel Day Lewis are basically the same person, the Goofy movie and how great it is, how Anna's father is always laying on the ground, Shereen missing...
