Can you believe we’ve done Totally Laime for TWO WHOLE YEARS?! It is utter insanity, as is this episode where we go guestless and share some of our favorite moments from our past year of podcasting. Plus, how do we fare at Laime or Totally: Rapid Fire? Thank you to Kulap Vilaysack, Paul Rust, Erin Whitehead, Eli Braden, Mark Gagliardi, Eddie Pepitone, and every guest we had this past year. We wish we could include you all! Enjoy!
