68: Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal! (Home Alone 2: Lost in New York)
Our two months of "Christmas Classics" continues this week, as the elves revisit the Home Alone franchise (for the first time since the podcast's third episode!) and cover Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Julia, Thom, and Anthony join Kevin McCallister as he takes a holiday journey into the New York City of Christmases past - back when airline travel was still lax, the World Trade Center was still standing, Manhattan was much scarier in the dead of night, and before Donald Trump moved into the White House and owned The Plaza instead. The hosts are absolutely giddy in this episode as they discuss this quintessential holiday romp and it shows in their wide-ranging conversation, which includes some hilarious impressions and a plethora of favorite quotes and scenes (more than we've had in a long time!) amongst many other things. In addition, quirky, odd, and weird things that remind us of the holiday season are discussed! With the weather outside getting frightful, and the fire inside being so delightful, settle down in front of it with your favorite Christmas beverage, relax, and enjoy - trust us when we say, this is an episode you do not want to miss!
