82. Year-End Yak 2020 & the 2nd Annual Goguma Awards!

Thanks for spending this awful, trying, ridiculous and neverending year with us. For all the dark times, we also laughed a lot, had some milestones, and had an unprecedented year of interaction with you, our beautiful community! Here’s some thoughts (…okay, a lot of thoughts, hours of thoughts) about what our year in dramas was like, and another helping of the Goguma Awards, which we kicked off last year. (Goguma, meaning sweet potato, is the name of our yak.)

Time stamps are in the episode description in the Soundcloud link below. In this post, I’ve written out all the winning dramas we mentioned for each category for your reference. Buckle yourselves in, it’s a long one!
