Top 10 Posts and Episodes for December 2013 and 2013 Overall

2013 has been an interesting year for us.  We went to Worldcon, we added new people to the show and the blog, and we commandeered a rocket from Space X, stole Patrick Hester’s Hugo Award, and send it to the sun.  Basically, it was an awesome year.
