A sad episode, as this will be the last for a little while. Yes, Lambert's Basement will be taking a brief hiatus. But fear not as the show most definitely will return! Also, don't forget that you can always visit and listen back to some of the older episodes that are still available. As this is a rather extended show, there is a short verbal intermission in the middle where Igor tries his hand at some DIY. Is he feeling nostalgic? Who knows? Who…knows.
