Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, listeners!

The holidays are upon us which means only one thing: year-end deadlines are looming for our many projects and we are all doomed!

...

I mean...we get to ask Santa for what shiny new toys we could use for next year!

Whether being gifted to us by a jolly fat man, our loved ones or just a little treat to ourselves for retaining our sanity this year, we all have some top requests on our list. What's on your list? More hard drives? Subscription to Adobe for another year (or five)? An editing assistant who works for coffee?

Josh and I list off our top gift requests from Santa this year and had better see a few of these under the tree this year.

Share with us your own Christmas wants via Twitter and we'll see it gets received by the Big Man himself.

Hey, remember our interview with the fellas from SOUNDSTRIPE? Give Episode 65 a listen if you haven't heard it yet.

ON WITH THE SHOW

Mae was bartending and raising a daughter in Atlanta when a producer approached her after seeing her music mashup projects that she continued to work on in her spare time.

Self-taught and self-propelled, after seeing a trailer for Zack Snyder's 300 she immediately vowed to become an editor.

She's a delightful and talented person to begin with but she's also a real-life example of what you should do if you're passionate about your work but have no doors open to you to the industry.
