It's the end of the year (almost!) and we're looking ahead to January to dig in to a new "era" here at Bitch Media.

I don't know about you, but I've been spending a whole lot of time with preschoolers lately. Amongst some of the things we teach the tykes are the days of the week.

Use this mixtape to refresh your memory if you ever find yourself forgetting which day comes next.
