Toby Hanson, Ainslie Heilich, Sergio Paredes

In the Christmas Episode, Ainslie and Toby are joined by guest host Bro. Christopher McHale of Covenant Lodge #6 in Missoula, Montana.  They start off the show with a quick mention of Lake Stevens, Washington and an explanation of why.  They share updates from past guests of the show and talk about the impact they're seeing in Odd Fellowship, including the chartering of a new lodge in Virginia.  Bro. Michael Greenzeiger, Deputy Grand Master of California, shares his special Hanukkah message for Odd Fellowship.  The hosts talk about what has made Odd Fellowship meaningful to each of them.  For Ainslie, it's the chance to use his artwork to give back and strengthen Odd Fellowship.  For Toby, it's a tragic story he heard from a member that led to that member's life-long devotion to Odd Fellowship.  For Christopher, it's the experiences he had curating the historical collection of the Montana Odd Fellows Museum and his term as Noble Grand of his lodge.  All that plus a few entertaining detours along the way, including a discussion of the food culture of Odd Fellowship, Christopher's misspent youth on Long Island listening to Morrissey and Slayer, and his desire to take an associate membership in Iron Links Lodge #5 in Atlanta just for the food.  In the Odd Podge, Toby updates us on the progress of recording new versions of the Odes, Ainslie talks about the upcoming Odd Fellows' Primer written by Bro. Michael Greenzeiger, and Christopher shares his favorite ghost zine and previews his upcoming podcast, The Lonely Hammer.
