S01 - E10 - Resolution, or, The Void Gobbles Back *NEW*

Audio Giftie / Audience Qs / Big Buddhie / Resolution


Can a conversational romp have a finale? Have Neil and James run out of turkeys? Find out--once and for all--in the Talking Turkey season finale.

With nary a butterball in sight, Neil and James receive a "giftie," before chasing after some listener turkeys. In the end, all that seems to matter is an old apartment, a telephone pole, and a really "big buddhie."

Stick around for the extended outro as the lads peer into the show's murky future.

Charlotte Bronte: "Giftie" from Villette, Vol. 2, Ch XVI:

"I noted them all - the third person as well as the other two - and for the fraction of a moment believed them all strangers, thus receiving an impartial impression of their appearance. But the impression was hardly felt and not fixed, before the consciousness that I faced a great mirror, filling a compartment between two pillars, dispelled it: the party was our own party. Thus for the first, and perhaps only time in my life, I enjoyed the 'giftie' of seeing myself as others see me. No need to dwell on the result. It brought a jar of discord, a pang of regret; it was not flattering, yet, after all, I ought to be thankful; it might have been worse."
