But after an exceedingly divisive election season and a result that left many wounds, the thought of politics rearing its head at family gatherings or office Christmas parties may have you reaching for the Tums instead of egg nog.

Part two of our interview with Marshal Andy.  The good Marshal explains how created his persona and television show.
