Paul Scheer [00:00:00] Paul’s Picks are back. What’s up with that Dungeons Dragons episode? And what is the moral of a Beauty and the Beast? All this and more on today’s Last Looks. Hit the theme.   Music [00:00:19] [Intro Song]   Paul Scheer [00:00:50] What’s up, all my bad boys and bad girls of Baltimore? I’m your host, Paul Scheer, and welcome to How Did This Get Made Last Looks. This is an Ion Original podcast presented, of course, by Ben Cannon. This is the show where you, the listener, get to voice your issues on A Beauty and the Beast Christmas, plus, I will tell you all the things I’m currently loving and that I want to recommend to you in a classic Paul’s Picks segment. That’s right. It’s back because I couldn’t get anyone else to jump in and do this with me in a holiday week. That’s right. My life is spent in a recording booth in my house at weird hours of the day because of you. And I love being here
