Advice Not Taken Podcast Ep. #009: Alone on the Holidays

Episode #009 has an empty co-host chair as Jamie sits down for the first-ever solo episode of Advice Not Taken.  

Jamie sits down to discuss being alone for the holidays, making your own traditions, how different vices affect different people, how to fight with your family at Thanksgiving dinner, taking yourself out on a date, and much more! 

Plus in the Logcast Audience Advice section, we tackle the question: "If you could bring one comic bring one comic back from the dead, who would it be?"
