The Final Episode! Does He Drink Coffee? (2020)
Dear listeners, welcome to the last episode of The Larry Miller Show! We have really enjoyed bringing the show to you and being part of this fun with all of you. For the grand finale, since it is December, we have decided to go out with our annual holiday tradition of Larry re-telling his story, "Does He Drink Coffee?" Plus, Larry does a big tribute to the late, great Sean Connery. Also, Larry tells his favorite joke of all time and recites his favorite Robert Frost poem from memory.
As you may have noticed, we haven't had a new episode in a few months. We've been unable to find a way to produce the show safely in these difficult times, as pre-production largely consists of Larry and his producer Colonel Jeff sitting in a small room for half a day, drinking decaf and talking. They talk mostly about Wagon Train, as if that's productive somehow. But that's the process.
So, we've decided it's time to roll up the old circus tent. Thanks so much for listening and thanks for all of the yuks you've given us. It's really been a lot of fun bringing you the show and getting to know so many of you for the last 11 seasons. You're a good group! Keep up the good work. And as always, nominum quid geminus?

LARRY MILLER DRINKING SOCIETY FOREVER
I am card carrying member. I am sad to know this show ended. It gave me many years of wonderful laughter. I am grateful to Colonel Jeff, Chris Laxamana, and everyone else who helped bring Larry Miller’s podcast into the world. For a while there every Wednesday or so I knew no matter what turmoil was happening within my personal life there was going to be 26-45 minutes of funny, thoughtful, poignant, warm, familiar, enlightening sound I could beam into my brain through my headphones.
Thank you all so very much.
I still have my drinking club card. Thanks for the good times.
