AND IMPEACHMENT IN A PEAR TREE
Jingle, jingle, SaysWhovia! Dan and Maureen had a few issues getting the recording done this week. Dan threw a pair of scissors, then the internet broke, like, twenty times. So our friends are not as well as they might be. But it’s all fine, for this is the season of glad tidings and joy. That is what Maureen is here to remind Dan. Dan has other things to remind Maureen.He wants her to know, for example, that Rudy’s son has a job at the White House as a sports consultant or something. And that Trump needs glasses. But mostly he wants to tell her about the impeachment proceedings, and how they are going. In the last few weeks,  twelve witnesses  testified. Twelve! Like the days of Christmas! And if Maureen had more juice in her caboose right now, she might even try to write lyrics for the Twelve Days of Christmas with the witness names pinged in, but she does not, SaysWhovia. Because Dan told her more things. He told her how he thinks things are going as we careen toward the end of the year and this phase of the proceedings and towards 2020 and the Senate and the election and……well, it’s all fine, SaysWhovia. Get yourself a cup of cocoa and sit yourself down. Tuck yourself under this nice blanket. We will do this together. ***Dan's tracking impeachment news and sending out updates every day.

A MESSAGE TO YOU RUDY with Helen Rosner
Oh, hello, SaysWhovia. We were just putting out the plates. There’s turkey and pie, and potatoes, and, why, I think we have a little impeachment left in the fridge.Yes, it’s Thanksgiving! The holiday of feasting! Of pie! Of traffic! Of jumping over the table to wrestle another relative to the ground! Here in SaysWhovia, we celebrate communally. Everyone is invited. Dan and Maureen have been cooking all day and they want you to eat up. And Helen Rosner, food writer for The New Yorker, has stopped by for her annual visit! She talks tradition, family meals, and plays another round of “Would Trump Eat It?”This episode also contains a Says Who first: AN EXCLUSIVE NEWS STORY. Yes. This is actually true. Telling you more would be spoiling it, but let’s just say… we’re a part of the story now. Not a bit part. Not a sane part. But a part.Grab a fork. It’s time to get busy.***Today's episode includes the track "News Theme 1" by Audionautix, published under the CC3 license. Dan's tracking impeachment news and sending out updates every day.

NO JACKET REQUIRED: A SAYS WHO IMPEACHMENT SPECIAL
Ding ding! It’s a special Says Who bonus episode. As we’ve entered into the impeachment hearings, Dan and Maureen are here to watch and walk you through. Because this is going to be a lot.A lot of what? Well, a lot of bow ties, and recitation of things we’ve heard, and bullshit. And a lot of water. So much water. Giant bottles of water. Listen to the story of two nerds doing their duty, dealing with questions from increasingly insane carnival employee Jim Jordan and last-pick mental volleyball star Devin Nunes. Why doesn’t Jim Jordan where a jacket? How much water is in that bottle? Is this just how we live now?This is just the start, SaysWhovia. Pull up a chair to your old podcast player and rock a bit. It’s time. It’s happening. It’s now.***Dan's tracking impeachment news and sending out updates every day.

This is going to be a big week for impeachment.fyi. He’s going to need a whole lot of conspiracy wall to keep up! As for Maureen, well, she’s been waiting for this for a long time. She’s ready.And you know who else is ready? Noted cybersecurity expert Rudy Giuliani. Rudy is thinking about starting his own impeachment podcast, and Maureen could not be more ready for it. Rudy has been busy recently, making friends and texting reporters. Which gives Maureen a little idea…This week is going to be so newsy that there will be a second Says Who on Thursday.
