D.C. #28: Award Bait 2018

We’re dressed to the nines - and at sixes and sevens - to describe the ten-out-of-tens of twenty eighteen. In a series of categories, Johno and Chris name their picks, and reveal the people’s choice, to determine the greatest of the year that was.

Then, amongst the debris, Johno and Chris wind down with a new game(!): Quality Rhyme.
