The fictional Roy family on HBO's Succession is one of the most dysfunctional to ever grace the silver screen.

The family is in a constant battle for control of the global media and entertainment company Waystar Royco. And as they continually stab each other in the back, Waystar General Counsel and acting CEO Gerri Kellman is always there to keep the motley crew on track.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. That is, unless you ordered the latest gadget too late, and now it's stuck in supply chain limbo.

Or if you are the kind of person who leaves their shopping until it's down to the wire, like Daniel Gritzer, the culinary director of Serious Eats.

Before we begin this next story, we'd like to warn listeners we're going to be discussing alleged sexual coercion and assault.

It has been 30 years since Dan Savage started his column "Savage Love" to answer questions about sex, love and relationships.

He's celebrating the anniversary with a new book, Savage Love from A to Z, an illustrated collection of essays with one for each letter of the alphabet.

Things have changed a lot from when he started writing about sex in The Stranger, Seattle's alternative weekly newspaper, in 1991.
