Meredith and I came into this week's podcast episode feeling bullish on the prospect of pivoting from last week's early Festivus miracle by focusing only on uplifting, cheerful topics...only to be confronted with the reality that no matter what time of year it is, trolls are gonna troll.

Peace, love, and tacos,
