  • Boston's New Year's celebration will look a little different this year. First Night Boston has promptly folded up operations citing lack of funds. Margery and guest host Sue O'Connell asked callers if they'll miss it.
  • Callie Crossley talked with Margery and Sue about the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, as well as allegations of a racist tirade by TV cook Paula Deen.
  • WGBH contributor David Bernstein talked to Margery and Sue about liquor licenses and Massachusetts Blue Laws.
  • Greater Boston's Emily Rooney joined Margery and Sue for another edition of Emily's List.
  • For the Friday News Quiz — in honor of next Tuesday's US Senate election — it's donkey vs. elephant. Judy Ballantine from Save Your Ass Rescue squares off against elephant expert Dr. Bill Langbauer.
