Michael Shaw joins the podcast this week with a special Halloween episode. 
He retells his spooky night sleeping at the Thurber House and Beth and Paul tell their own spooky stories (Vin has led a very boring life and does not have a spooky story). We also talk about our favorite and least favorite Halloween candies.

You can read the rest of Michael's Thurber story here:

To participate in Michael's Caption Scramble, You will need to join Beth's facebook group, The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest Rejects (and Enthusiasts):
(It is a private group, so there will be an easy quiz to take to get into it.)
