The best G-dcast ever! (j/k!) No no, it's a great episode, we PROMISE! (As if!) You'll learn a lot! (Psych!)

So if you're the type of person who might accidentally have sworn you'd be nice to your little sister this year, or that you'd eat less chocolate, or that you'd curse less, well...listen up.
