Tis the Podcast
The voices behind the podcast are just three super Christmas nerds who love anything and everything Christmas. So what can you expect from this group of misfit toys? Every week we're going to look at a different Christmas movie, special, or TV episode.
As we talk, we'll share our reviews, insights, and witty banter. As our reviews grow, you can find the canonical ranking of Christmas movies here on our site. Really, what more could you want out of a Christmas podcast?
Santa's Head Elf
Anthony inherited his love (some might say obsession) for Christmas from his parents, specifically his mother. He firmly believes that Christmas is a feeling that should be celebrated year round, not just once a year. (Though he will admit the month of December itself is the best month of the year, and September-December is "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year".) Besides the holidays, Anthony is: an aspiring author; a proud geek; an animal lover; and a progressive, feminist, political nerd. In addition, he watches way too many movies and television shows, and is adept at dropping quotes from all of them into everyday conversation. He’s also lucky enough to have three places on Earth he calls home – New York (USA), Newfoundland (Canada), and Newcastle (UK) – and he loves his wife and two cats more than anything else, including Christmas itself.

The Holiday Armadillo
Julia is a people-loving Pollyanna with an affinity for useless knowledge and pop-culture trivia. She can often speak in Movie/TV Quotes and Gifs. With her amazing husband’s support, she has made it her goal to raise their 4 kids to not be cotton-headed ninny muggins’.
"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear"
Chief Reindeer Pooper Scooper
Thom has a self-diagnosed Christmas obsession and is known to subject his very loving and supportive wife and sweet daughter to Christmas music during the hottest of Oklahoma months. Throughout the year, Thom serves as an Orthodox deacon, volunteers with teens, works marketing magic, loves to cook, and enjoys reading, and lots of nerdy things.
"Santa! Oh, my God! Santa's coming! I know him! I know him!"
