This week, we venture into the dark heart of the American experiment with a nativity play, a bounce house, and some of your favorite distressingly right-wing actors. It’s ‘Four Christmases,’ a certifiable not-classic that nevertheless holds some highly specific value for our hosts. We talk about childlessness by choice, Peak Vince Vaughn Territory, singers who act in movies but don’t sing in them, and the undervalued comedy stylings of Reese Witherspoon. It’s a nightmare landscape peopled with backyard wrestlers and fat Jesus babies, so grab your Velveeta dip and your pregnancy test and let’s quadruple the Christmas!

Your gracious hosts have taken a break from podcasting this season, but we couldn’t ignore Food Network & Discovery Plus’s ‘Candy Coated Christmas,’ starring (kind of) everyone’s favorite home cook, the Pioneer Woman herself, Ree Drummond! Fans of the show will know why we could not pass up this cavity-inducing gem, and fans of food media will be delighted to find that this episode is about 90% blathering about YouTube cooking shows. There’s something for everyone in this seasonal one-off, so plop down with some figgy-ass pudding and get into it!
Introducing: 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!
