It’s Thanksgiving week here in the US, and you know what that means: We’re celebrating another Shane Black Friday! On this week’s show, Martin R. Schneider of the podcast Breaking Mayberry joins us to discuss Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, the only movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that even exists in the ballpark of holiday cinema. Also in this episode, we tease out some of the strengths and failings of the MCU, and dedicate more time than we probably should to a gigantic stuffed rabbit.
Anyway, with so many different flavors of holiday podcast out there, we all agreed that the best way to spread Christmas cheer was to launch our own podcast network!
THE CHRISTMAS PODCAST NETWORK is the brainchild of Brian Earl and Thom Crowe —of Christmas Past and Tis The Podcast, respectively—and they’ve gathered together ten holiday podcasts to pump out the holly jolly goodness all year long!
We’re happy to be counted among the network’s charter members, and we hope you’ll join us on this new chapter in Christmas Creeps history. More is always merrier, and I can’t think of a better way to ring in the 2018 holiday season.
Home For The Horrordays continues this week, as Karyn-5 returns to discuss one of the most notoriously terrible slasher films ever made: Silent Night Deadly Night 2! While the original is a fairly straightforward little slasher film, the sequel cranks things to 11 with a half hour of needless flashbacks and one of the most baffling lead performances ever committed to film. But as we discover, that’s exactly what makes the film so damn entertaining!
Also on this episode: We discover a universe in which Two & A Half Men is the greatest TV show ever made, and we plead with the WWE for a big budget remake.
It’s October, everybody! Grab your pumpkin spiced beverages and your candy corn flavored whatnots, because it’s time to go Home For the HorrorDays! This week, we’re discussing the indie/Aussie holiday horror film Better Watch Out. This film features a couple twists and turns that get us very riled up, so we encourage you to hunt down a copy to watch before diving in to join us. Then again, if holiday slashers aren’t really your thing, we do pretty much spoil the whole movie and then some. So we got your back!
Last Christmas, we teamed up with six other Christmas podcasts to bring you “The House of Seven Santas”, a Yuletide radio drama told in seven parts across seven websites. It was a fun little experiment, but rather than duplicate it, we thought we’d all ask what YOU would like to hear this holiday season. All you have to do is:
It’s five simple questions about how you like to celebrate/observe the holidays. One of the questions, for example, is “When do you begin to celebrate Christmas?”
The Christmas podcast community has grown by leaps and bounds over the last couple years. This year, we’re teaming up with TEN other sites! It’s an esteemed collection of holly jolly weirdos just like us, who can’t get enough of Christmas and everything that comes with it:
Your feedback will help us decide the type of collaboration we’ll be bringing you this holiday season! Cynics out there will tell you that voting doesn’t matter. Well maybe it doesn’t, but in this case, it matters! We’re putting the power in your hands to tell us what kind of joint holiday podcast you’d like to hear this Christmas season.
The survey ends on Halloween, so be sure to give it a look, tell us what you think, and pass it around! May the merry holiday podcast experiment begin!
On this week’s Stocking Stuffer, Joe & Bradford travel to the Land of Ooo and discuss “Holly Jolly Secrets”, from the third season of Adventure Time. Finn and Jake discover the Ice King’s secret box of videotapes, and a Christmas tradition is accidentally born. Also in this episode, we talk about having fun in the era of camcorders, the paradigm shift between 1990s cartoons and 2010s cartoons, and more!
Hurricane Florence scuttled our regular recording plans, but never fear! Stocking Stuffers are here!
On this episode, Joe & Bradford discuss “Doug’s Secret Christmas”, the only episode of Disney’s Doug to air in prime time! The guys are forced to look on as Doug has The Talk with his dad, discover how Doug is somehow more progressive than Ed, Edd & Eddy, and Joe comes to the realization that he’s been celebrating Christmas of 2015 for the past four years.
