Transcript for Episode 31: Election Day, Part 1

INTRO – Jeff Van Dreason

Hey, everyone! Just a few programming notes about Season 3. You’re about to listen to the first half of our Season 3 mid-season finale. That’s right, this episode is so epic we split it in half and are releasing two episodes on the same day. So if you want more Greater Boston after you listen to Episode 31 part 1? Look for Episode 31 part 2 in your feed immediately after.

After this episode, we’ll be taking a few weeks off. We’ll be back in three weeks on December 18th, with the first mini-episode in a three part series that will be released every other week. These mini-series answers a question we know is on a lot of your minds.


What the F*ck’s Up with the Guinea Pigs?

After those mini-episodes are released, we’ll be back with regular-length episodes on Tuesday, January 29th, running the length of the rest of the season.

In the meantime, if you like what we’ve been doing here, support us however you can. We were announced as finalists for the Discover Pods Desert Island Podcast category, in addition to a bunch of AudioVerse awards. And of course there’s always our Patreon, or leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast app.

Thanks for listening. And enjoy Election Day – Part 1.

I am a….young, vibrant female trying to make it through…the rays of life. Umm, the ups and the downs, trying to figure it all out, and trying to learn as much as I can before the time ends.
