A Note on Christmas...
From the Useful Idiots
Hi there, Useful Idiots,
At noon on Christmas Eve, we posted our episode with veterans Matthew Hoh and Danny Sjursen. Since it was Christmas Eve, we worried a little that no one would watch the episode, but we recorded and edited and posted anyway.
And then we read some of your comments.
There was one story we saw recurring again and again: “Hey Matt and Katie, my Christmas got cancelled because of Covid and our family can’t be together. However, I’m happy to be able to laugh along with you today.”
In 2021, Useful Idiots took a big step and went independent. We couldn’t have imagined how incredible, interactive, and fun our audience would become. We had thousands join us for live shows, we hit new listener records, and we donated a ton of money to the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press. All thanks to useful idiots around the world.
So we wanted nothing more than to spend Christmas Eve with you.
Thanks to all for a great year. And whatever sucky, weird, and terrible things 2022 brings us, let’s just keep being Useful Idiots together.
Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, whatever else you celebrate.
Matt, Katie, and Wilson
