If you’re one of those people who regard the big holiday family get-together with at least a mild sense of dread, consider taking part in this slightly classic audio performance art tradition. Jeff & Gordon’s Not at the Dinner Table works two ways — you can leave anonymous voice messages getting all that personal and/or political resentment off your chest in the hopes of keeping the party polite at home; or you can be a lurker, listening to a rotating selection of other people’s voicemails in search of comedy, empathy, and schadenfreude.

The service is available 24/7 through January 1, in case you ever need to step outside and make a call. Dial (785) 268-6858 until January 1, 2020. Jeffandgordon.net.
