98: Giving Christmas Gifts Is Like A Sport To Me. Finding Or Making That Perfect Something. It’s Also Like A Sport To Me Because I Always Win. (Parks and Recreation/Avengers: Endgame)
Due to some scheduling issues this week, not only was our original plan to cover the Christmas episodes of Modern Family pushed back a week, but Thom was sadly unable to make the recording of this episode due to travel for work! As such, Julia and Anthony right a wrong that listeners pointed out after our previous episode dropped, and cover "Citizen Knope", Parks and Recreation's fourth-season Christmas episode that we somehow missed when covering the other holiday episodes of the comedy last week! What we thought was only going to be a short mini-episode, however, turns into a supersized one, when the two elves turn their attention to Avengers: Endgame and delve into the movie in great, spoilerly, loving detail! Don't worry though - for those of you who haven't seen the film yet, the Parks and Rec half of the episode is completely spoiler free, and afterward, fair warning (and a musical cue!) is given before talk switches to grand-finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far. While a break from the show's normal format, this is one episode you definitely do not want to miss, so settle in with your favorite Christmassy beverage, relax, and enjoy!
