Martin and Thomas’ 2017 Year in Review (Ep. 191)

Happy New Year, almost!

I suppose this is also going live on Christmas, so Merry that as well.

Anyway, we’ve decided to break a bit from our normal list of topics this week to reflect on what we’ve been up to this year. 2017 has been a bit hectic, but on a personal level, we’ve had quite a few big things happen this year, good and otherwise.

So if you’re not looking to feel too guilty for being unproductive over the holidays, but you’d still like to hang out with us and maybe learn a few accidental life lessons along the way, here you go.

Stoke that fireplace, set us up on a tablet next to it, and enjoy that my Christmas sweater is way better than Tom’s boring normal clothes.
