Popmatic Podcast for November 30, 2016: Party’s (Almost) Over

By , November 30, 2016

After eight years and over 180 episodes Popmatic Podcast is about to call it in. December 21st will be our last episode. To congratulate ourselves for all our hard work, we just talk about whatever we want today. There are no rules. Sarah shows up half way through this episode because no rules. Will a beloved Popmatic stalwart call in from a Florida beach? Were there ever any rules? At the very end of the show, we wax poetic about all our podcast memories. If you are sad faced, be calmed. All of December will be our best of the year episodes. Since we know we are about to get canned, I’m sure they will be bonkers.
