Podcast 50: Golden Podcast -- 88 Years in 44 Minutes

Milestone achieved! We know we said a few podcasts ago that if we made it to 50 we were probably going to give some stuff away to listeners -- but obviously that didn't happen. Everyone hold out for Podcast 100! Anyway, besides discussing some great episodes (some would say the best episode ever) the results of the season 5 drinking game are revealed! PLUS we had our BIG season 5 wrap-up. BIG! Is season 5 the greatest TNG season ever? Listen!
