Episode 28 of Upon Further Review!

The holidays are officially upon us, and as always we’re ready to offer our take on them in Episode 28 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank our loyal listeners for their active participation in our comments section (and ask for more, greedy types that we are) before heading into the main portion of our show:  first, we look at all things festive as we analyze, well, just about every major holiday we can think of (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, traditional Buddhist festivals, Neopagan, Native American, even atheist…and yes, there is one) with the exception of the Hindu Festival of Lights–not because it’s less worthy, but because we missed it on our list (which shows why you shouldn’t bite off more than you can chew!); second, we discuss ways to get in the giving spirit as we check out a variety of click-to-donate sites; and finally, we break down all the consumerism we just got ourselves caught up in with our review of the underground hip-hop / social commentary stylings of Julien Smith and the In Over Your Head podcast.   As always, we are grateful for your support–and never more than now, in the holiday season.  We wish you a wonderfully peaceful holiday season–thanks for making this such a great year for UFR, and for spreading the word to friends and family in the weeks and months to come!  (As usual, podsafe intro is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), but NOT as usual the podsafe outro music is provided by a “mystery singer.”  Much respect to the person who guesses who it might be… :) )
