    Another excellent episode. I really enjoyed the review of 2015 best segments as it was a great reminder of some of the many ways TRC entertained me. Some of my favourite segments were:
    – Darrens segment on the most bombed country on earth (episode 333) was my runner up for most shocking segment.
    – The most surprising (although perhaps somewhat less influential) segment was aDam’s segment on the Berenstain Bears (episode 363). I loved the Berenstein bears growing up and was shocked to lear it was spelt Berenstain. The fact there is a conspiracy theory around this is equally surprising.
    – I also thoroughly enjoyed Pat’s overly complicated yet well thought out rules of “Game That” from episode 337. At the time it reminded me of Elan’s not so well thought out but very entertaining games. I hope to hear more games of “Game That” in the future.
    – Lastly I was very surprised by Christina segment on whether extraneous factors affect judicial decisions in episode 371.
    Hope 2016 is filled with just as many stellar segments. Keep up the great work TRC.

    I love the show and was thinking about Cristina’s segment this week. I have an android phone and wondered if this would work on my phone. I typed in lardass and my options for auto correct were parades and carcass. However, when I typed in lardas my options were Kardassian and Kansas. I thought this was really interesting and wanted to share my findings with you guys, can’t wait till next weeks show!
