04:50 Resolutions Review: Catherine and Terri set some goals back in 2017 (episode 151). We listen back and check in to see if we achieved any of them. Mentioned: A Visit from the Goon Squad on Round 2; the Sandbox app (again!).

15:38 Most Popular Episode of 2017: Who would have predicted this, as sunshiny as we are? "Accentuate the Negative" from March 3, 2017, was our most downloaded episode of 2017. Let's listen to that title segment again now, shall we? Chances are your kids are taking offense to something even as we speak.

27:41 Most Popular Speed Round of 2017: "Do You Plan Your Travel or Wing It?" (featuring a tale of advance planning gone wrong), from February 21, was our listeners' favorite. It blows through this week's episode like, you might say, a hurricane.

32:19 Most Popular Round 2 of 2017: The most downloaded of our weekly entertainment-themed episodes was our February 28 chat about the Oscars, the "Bad Moon Rising" episode of The West Wing, and the movie Argo. Check out a snippet on Oscar dress mechanics and then give the whole thing a listen.
