***SPOILERS AHEAD*** First up in our jaunt through this season’s quaint and cozy offerings is Jingle Bell Bride, in which an ambitious New York wedding planner (Julie Gonzalo) finds herself marooned in deepest Alaska. The chilly frontier is made warmer by the welcoming locals, one of whom is a handsome flower merchant (Ronnie Rowe Jr.) whose easygoing manner might be just what our misplaced Manhattanite needs. All this and an elephant dart full of Christmas cheer on this episode of A Podcast For Christmas!
It’s that time of year again! And what better way to close out one of the most surreal years in human memory than with a deep dive down some of the most wholesome rabbit holes basic cable has to offer? Join hosts Angela Harmon and Mike Fisher as they traverse the glittering, peppermint-scented landscape of late-capitalist Americana that is the Hallmark Christmas movie. Every week, we sample another of Hallmark Channel’s maddeningly approachable wares and weigh it on our very scientific scale to see just how snowy, small-towny, and downright Christmassy it is. So hop into your elfin jam-jams, pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa, pop a few Lexapro, and let’s jingle!
