339: Everybody’s Asking What This - What Is The Seven Fishes Or Why Do We Do It? And I Think I Know What My Definition Is. (The Bear - Season 2 - Episode 6 - Fishes)

Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics!

This week, the always fabulous Kendall Farrae, of the upcoming "Two Girls, One Crypt" podcast, joins Julia, Thom, and Anthony in Chicago as they travel back in time half-a-decade to celebrate a big 'ol Italian Christmas Eve by discussing the lone holiday episode (thus far) of Hulu's/FX's critically acclaimed show, "The Bear"! The episode in question? Episode 6 of Season 2, "Fishes"!Β 

Listen as they discuss the tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes, which is a focal point of this episode, and gush over "The Bear" in general, including the fantastic roster of guest stars the show manages to bring together for this holiday extravaganza - including the always incredible Jamie Lee Curtis and Bob Odenkirk! Though a hectic, anxiety-inducing episode of television, "Fishes" feels real and familiar to all four hosts for many different reasons, and is a hell of an entertaining and incredible episode of stand-alone television! So settle in as the elves and their guest walk you through the plot chaotic-beat by chaotic-beat until they reveal just how Christmassy this episode is and whether or not it will enter their holiday canon!

Also discussed: what Kendall's been up to since her last appearance on the show; a scary incident that recently occurred with Julia's dog, Lucy; Thom's recent trip to New York where he, Anthony, and Sarah got to hang out; and the fact that we are now officially in the home stretch and counting down the remaining days until the fast-approaching 'Ber Months!

This is one jam-packed episode you want to be sure not to miss! So, settle back and enjoy! And, as always, thanks for your love and support, y'all! ❀️ πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸŽ πŸ¦ŒπŸ¦‰β›„οΈπŸ””πŸš‚ 🀢🏻 πŸŽ€ ❄️
