The final episode of 2016, and it's a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. On one hand, you'll get to hear a very positive review (with only a few small spoilers) for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", but on the other hand, a moment is taken to remember the royal majesty of the Star Wars universe herself, the late Carrie Fisher. With Lisa off doing a gaming session with friends, Paul takes the lead on this one and gives a heartfelt monologue reflecting on the past year, and the recent events that have transpired. So now, presented to you, is the final episode for the year 2016. Thank you for listening and supporting the podcast. May you all have a wonderful new year, and hopes for all the best in 2017. Cheers.

“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.” - Carrie Fisher (1956-2016)

Your favourite Wonder Siblings are back again with a whole boatload of holiday cheer, crazy antics and no egg nog! We swear! But what we do have is midseason finales, trailers, video games and a few items for a Christmas wish list. So grab yourself a nice hot cocoa, wrap yourself up in a blanket and enjoy the weird ramblings of the two sibling (not-so) superheroes, Paul and Lisa. And everyone, have a wonderful holiday season and stay safe. And if you live in a cold region, be careful outside on the snow and ice. You definitely don't want to fall and break a leg, or your neck. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Feliz Navidad, Joyous Krampus Nacht or anything else you might celebrate. Oh but remember, whatever you do....don't get them wet, don't let them into the light (especially sunlight, it'll kill them), and never feed them after midnight. Take care, and thank you for tuning in.
**Just a small note: there is one small glitch around the halfway point of the episode where 30-45 seconds of the episode are missing. I was able to keep the music track in place, but a small bit of the conversation was lost. My deepest apologies for it was out of my control.
"Tune Time" Outro Track: "Gothic Christmas" by Within Temptation

EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it! Aliens attacking! It's an all out INVASION! And we here, at The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast, have the latest and up to date headlines, stories and hilarious quotes from this other-worldly event. And we've got superheroes too! And do you know what else we've got? We've got TWO hosts today.
Yes, please welcome back the other half of the Wonder Siblings, Lisa, as she sits down and joins Paul in breaking down last week's phenomenal DC Crossover Event that took place on the CW Network. And let it be known, you won't find much hating going on in this week's broadcast. There is nothing but love...and skirts...and cousins...and egotistical group names...and even a fern.
So gather round now, pull up a chair and let Lisa and Paul take you on a journey from Central City, through Star City and into the infinite depths of time and space while they remember back to last week, when the world was invaded by the Dominators.
