Steve and Cas are unprepared for the episode and decide to give Kris and Kate a call to see if they can help them get them in the Christmas spirit. Good times ensue: wassail is drunk, gifts are exchanged, movies are compared and more. Join Hearts2Tails for their first ever holiday episode. Cheers y'all!
Ok, so we didn't really join the Marines, but we did hang at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina with Cassie's sister Torrie and our producer, Senor Fletchbutt. We all (aside from Fletcher) drank a bunch of bourbon while enjoying a nice, frigid weekend at the beach. Also, be sure to checkout a non-profit organization that Torrie is very involved with: http://copperhorsecrusade. It's a good cause that addresses a sad problem.
