Oh boy, that was certainly a holiday, wasn’t it? The whole Peripheral team got SLAMMED by nightmarish Christmas and New Years obligations, but we are back! This week we’re releasing our holiday episode. Did we hold off on releasing it because it is really disturbing and we didn’t want to destroy your holiday with terror? Kind of.
Well, almost certainly.
Out topics are almost exclusively about entire families being murdered. Don’t worry, we handle it with the reverence and class that we here at Peripheral are known for.
We hope you enjoy this festive episode!
