In this episode...
Karen is joined by Emily and Sam from the Smashing Life team to talk all things Hanukkah! The Festival of Lights starts early this year, so we’re making sure to get in the holiday spirit, covering everything from our favorite Hanukkah eats to our thoughts about ugly Hanukkah sweaters to our pick for best Hanukkah movie of all time to how we’re finding the light in the darkness in our own lives this year.
