00:30 Holiday Prep: Let's just say we're not the type of people who buy all their Christmas gifts in July.
06:42 Self-Care: Our methods may not be conventional, but we discover we're kind of good at self-care, as long as it takes ten minutes or less. Mentioned: last week's "issues" podcast, Sandbox coloring app, "How to Treat Yourself Without Spending Money or Eating Junk" on Lifehacker.
22:50 Monday Speed Round: Words of Wisdom: A Facebook post from Susan Adcox inspired us to come up with pithy advice (four words or less). "Listen to our podcast" works!
28:27 Roundabout Roundup: Smart plugs, The 2017 Hater's Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog, and Devin Dawson's upcoming album (as well as this T.Swift mashup he did with Louisa Wendorff).
