Episode 18: Happy Halloween

The episode is up. Sorry there are no chapter markers or good pictures. We recorded days ago and I've been too tired to do anything so I thought it would be better to at least get the episode out there.

Shownotes will be up eventually! Please forgive the 8 month pregnant lady!!
