Daemons Discuss - Podcast: The 2019 Annual Holiday Episode!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2019!

Description: Well, what can we say about this episode, but it's the last one of the year! All Souls-y stuff? We tried. Going off the rails, chatting like we do? We succeeded! Perfect background noise for wrapping presents, drinking your hot spiced beverages, fighting the last minute shopping traffic, or trimming the tree! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a blessed New Year.

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read All Souls universe books, including the trilogy (A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, The Book of Life), and  Time's Convert + snippits from The World of All Souls. If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  Please be advised, we will approach the television series (A Discovery of Witches) the same way as episodes are released in the US/Canada. 😊  Let's do this. *Note - this podcast is labeled 'explicit'

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
This was a Daemon Production
