ONE YEAR! It's the one-year anniversary of this show!  Thank you! Thank you for listening and supporting this little show where we point and laugh at our own feelings.  You're the best, and you're the only reason we're here.

And as it's been a year, Dave decided it's about time he put himself under the microscope.  His good friend, Jake Weisman, agreed to come in and play the role of host for an hour.  They discussed many-a-thing, but mostly low self-esteem and not being liked.  Dave is convinced that no one likes him, and he realizes that it's insane to think so when he has very real friends in his life, but he nonetheless has a lot of trouble shaking the feeling that no one likes him.  He and Jake discuss that, where it comes from, why it persists, what it does to his life and relationships, and how to possibly get rid of it. They also play a soundbyte that Tony Thaxton made over and over and over again.

Dave and Anna send the podcast into the abyss in the best possible way.  Three of their favorites perform -- Kyle Kinane, Kyle Mizono and Guy Branum -- each of whom addresses fear and anxiety in a hilarious and beautiful way, and each uniquely different from everyone else on the show.  It ended with Dave and Anna opening the mic up to anyone who wanted to confess their anxieties and fears, which found almost everyone in the theater coming to the stage.  It was wonderful.  The show ended with a cameo from Debra DiGiovanni, who was brought up to defend her home country of Canada from Guy's barrage of insults against it earlier in the show.  Thank you to everyone who listened, wrote in and cared for this show.  We love you and we'll never forget how important this show was, and is, to all of us.

Anna and Dave give Terrified a proper send-off.  This is the last studio-recorded episode of the show, and the second to last ever (or at least for a long while).  The last episode will be recorded live, February 29th, 2016 at NerdMelt.  In this last discussion, Anna and Dave do a little bit of everything -- they joke around, they come up with catchphrases, they read listener emails, they do a call-in interview with their old friend Hasan Minhaj, they discuss their own battles with depression and anxiety, and they explain the end of the show.  They thank you, the listener, over and over again for being part of such a great thing.  Seriously.  Thank you.  This is a long one, because Anna and Dave just did not want to stop.  They love you.  We love you.  We'll see you February 29 at NerdMelt, and at the next thing, and the next.

Kristin Rand is a comedian based in Los Angeles, CA, formerly of Denver, CO. She's the best. She and Dave discuss a litany of things, from body image to personal growth to struggling professionally to eating disorders, all the while laughing like idiots. The episode concludes with Kristin opening up for one of the first times publicly about sexual assault, and the times it's it happened to her. It's shocking and heartbreaking and sad, and yet Kristin pulls it into the uplifting and optimistic and beautiful as well. She delves into it with courage and calm. It's impressive. She's impressive. We're so thankful she decided to share with us and we commend her unendingly on opening up about something so horrifying and difficult to even accept, much less deal with in a healthy way. Like we said, she's the best.
