Our special guests on today's show are Ariel and Bridget, two NY transplants that got their first taste of snow in yesterday's Nor'easter storm.

Aunt Jill Schlesinger joins the show today to talk about the value of bagels.

In the meanwhile, she tells Justin that given his meager investments of 16 cents in his IRA, he should just file the 1040EZ.
