Being in Perth, Western Australia, Joe is 15 hours ahead of us, and can thus predict the future, since he’s living in it.

Gidget has turned me on to some great music this year, including our top award winner Throwback Suburbia. She got me involved with the Superstorm Sandy Radiothon this past fall.
