  • BEAR SOUP voted top US podcast in Best of the Bears 2009! Congrats to Bears in da City (Ozbears) for being the Best Bear Podcast/Blog votegetters. CompleteBear shrugs its furry shoulders and claims “voting irregularities” as if that was self-explanatory. Even if there isn’t a prize, award, sash, cash or tiara — isn’t something called “Best of the Bears” worth doing right, or at least very well? Maybe someone else should take a crack at it.
  • The revised edition of Bears on Bears nominated for the Lammies. Support the Lambda Literary Foundation by becoming a member.
  • Shoutouts, and the usual ursine audio mishmash. A delightful and safe New Year to everyone!

I’m cooking up something steamy . . . it’s a bubbling bowl of tasty tangy BEAR SOUP!
