Biz and Theresa reflect on 2015 and look back at the resolutions we made a year ago to see how we did! (Surprise: it's a real mixed bag.) Then we talk about all the awesomeness that 2016 has in store, from our kids gaining more independence to us recommitting to doing stuff we actually WANT to do to all the great sleep we're sure we're going to get (ok, maybe not all our expectations are 100% realistic but we can dream)! Plus, we get a visit from pediatrician Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson who helps us get our priorities straight when it comes to our kids' health and our relationships with our doctors. Happy holidays! This is our last show of 2015 so thanks to all our listeners for an amazing year and we'll talk to you in 2016!

Barney Frank on Being In (and Out) of the Closet and What He Misses About Congress

The Honorable Barney Frank served as a House Representative for the state of Massachusetts for thirty-two years, from 1981 to 2013. He was the first congressman to come out as gay, and marry his same-sex partner while in office.

His legislative accomplishments included the Dodd-Frank Act, which brought about Wall Street reform and increased consumer protections. He was also influential in the passing of legislation regarding the environment, political reform and civil rights.

His memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage, is available now.

Barney Frank joined Jesse to talk about his early career in politics and why he felt his career in public service was incompatible with his private life; what he liked most about being a congressman; and why he believes that people who love campaigning are either liars -- or psychopaths.

Mission of Burma on Being Loud, Noise and Post-Punk, and Middle Age

Though the post-punk band Mission of Burma’s initial iteration was short-lived and resulted in only one full-length album, an EP and a few singles, their music influenced generations of musicians outside their home of Boston. Their appeal was still strong when they reformed in 2002 with band members Roger Miller, Peter Prescott and Clint Conley, adding new member Bob Weston.

Since then the band has continued to perform live and has released 4 albums including their most recent, entitled Unsound.

The band performed a live set for us, and sat down with Jesse to talk about reforming the band after almost two decades apart, why they don’t make an effort to be rock stars and the subtle difference between being "legendarily loud" and being "hard to take".
