The Three Hoarsemen #39 December 13, 2016

Hoarsemen vs. Nerds

In this episode, The Three Hoarsemen continue their fine tradition of helping you to empty your wallet! To do so we have the help of returning guest Patrick Hester, along with his Functional Nerds associate John Anealio to pick what you would like to see under the tree (whether it be for you or for somebody you know).

Afterwards, Jeff Patterson and Fred Kiesche are joined by John E. O. Stevens to hear John’s picks and then to wrap up the year with some culture consumed.

Are you ready for the picks?
