This week on YIP Mary and Tammy get a little help from the Alchemy Dance girls in Georgia...and what did they help with, you ask? They got us an interview with the faaabulous Mira Betz! The YIP Crew also discuss some fantastic topics in their usual vivacious, witty style!! Mary visits the folkloric and dark fusion worlds for her music reviews and Tammy keeps us in the know with some cool events coming up in 2010!
