We have a two-for-one special today on TCL. First up is the Dirtbag Diaries holiday podcast. Host Fitz Cahall sets the stage (Clark Griswold would be proud Fitz):
Warning: This episode contains radio nudity and Christmas carols.
Christmas trees are a massive business. Americans spent $2.5 billion on Christmas trees in 2007. For the last five years, I have been stingier than Scrooge when it comes to a Yule Tree. In 2008, I’m a changed man. Armed with a handsaw and empowered by a National Forest permit, I wandered out into the Cascades to search for the perfect Christmas tree. Sometimes in the darkest days of winter, a little light isn’t a bad thing.
