S2:E16: Season 2 Finale: The Best Atari Christmas Ever

From 2019: The best @#$! Chrustmas Ever!The Season 2 finale of Into The Vertical Blank. In this episode we pull out all the stops and explain exactly why Atari means so much to us. This honest, naked, all-cards-on-the-table, frank episode includes an Eponymous Story named "The Best #*@! Christmas Ever" that tells all. There is also discussion and a remix that incorporates the entirety of Season 2. This is probably not the final episode ever of Into The Vertical Blank, but if it was, we'd be satisfied that we achieved what we set out to do: exorcise the demons of our past and discover why we are here in the first place. ...
