This week we talk to Dan Haseltine (Jars of Clay, The Hawk In Paris) about his role with Blood:Water Mission, and the campaign they're embarking on this season called Deck The Stalls. And while that is 100% serious stuff, the crew takes things in the complete opposite direction by playing a Price-Is-Right-style Black Friday game, recapping the finale of the Twilight movie series, and discussing male nail polish. This episode is the turducken of podcasts!
