We may officially be past Christmas 2020, however, we here at Tis the Podcast are determined to keep the Christmas Spirit alive as much as ever before! This week we start the official countdown to Christmas 2021 with the 2002, Disney straight-to-video movie, Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year! In it, hear Julia, Thom, and Anthony talk about their long histories with that silly old bear, talk about which character from the Hundred Acre Wood they're most like, and much more - including the original concept for how Santa was supposed to die at the beginning of The Santa Clause, how much they want Steve Carell to play Santa in a Christmas movie, and a review that Anthony can't even get through reading without laughing! So settle in beside your Christmas tree, enjoy those lights while you can before it comes down for the year, and enjoy this fun-filled episode. And have a very Happy New Year! Here's to an amazing 2021 and a return to normal as all of us around the world build back better! :) 
Merry Christmas, everybody! Can you believe it's here already? 2020, as strange and as unusual as it's been, felt both slow and long at the same time!We hope Santa was good for you and brought you everything that you wanted. While we here at Tis the Podcast can't physically leave gifts in your stockings, we did want to deliver a virtual gift for you in the form of this bonus episode in which we discuss the brand new, 2020, Disney + original holiday special, The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special! Laugh along with Julia, Thom, and Anthony in this quote-a-plenty episode as they gush over this amazing gift from the House that Mickey Mouse built and geek out over just how much of a love letter this original production is to George Lucas' beloved and iconic creation! So, once you've opened all your gifts, drank all the eggnog you can consume, have had your Christmas dinner, and have zoomed with all of your relatives, settle in beside the glow of your Christmas tree and enjoy this fun episode you want to be sure not to miss! 
Merry Christmas Eve, everybody!We know that 2020 has been a tough year for everybody - though we hope you've all been good so Santa slides down your chimney later tonight with gifts! (Don't worry - Dr. Fauci has confirmed that he traveled up to the North Pole to vaccinate the big man himself, so no need to worry about Santa quarantining!) As such, we chose this year's annual Christmas Eve story because it serves as a reminder of what Christmas is truly about, which we believe we can all use this year given how different the holidays are going to be. That's right - we've chosen to read the beloved and iconic 1957, Dr. Seuss classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Spoiler alert - this may just be our favorite Christmas Eve story we've recorded yet. We hope you like it and enjoy it as much as we do! :) 
It's the Day Before the Night Before Christmas! Christmas Eve, Eve! Also known as Christmas Adam to some, and Tibb's Eve to our Newfoundland, Canadian friends and family! Thanks to Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, and Daniel O'Keefe, however, today is most known by the masses as a Festivus for the Rest of Us! To celebrate the occasion, and help Julia, Thom, and Anthony celebrate their grievances, frequent guest host and friend of the pod, Gerry Davila of Totally Rad Christmas joins the show today to talk the Christmas episodes of the iconic and famous show about nothing, Seinfeld! For those who want to follow along at home, that includes: Season 3 - Episode 29 - The Red Dot Season 4 - Episode 13 - The Pick Season 6 - Episode 10 - The Race Season 9 - Episode 10 - The Strike While Julia and Thom have been open on the show in the past about not being the biggest fans of Seinfeld, Anthony and Gerry are. Is their enthusiasm, mingled with Frank Costanza's disdain for the commercialism of the holidays, enough to change their minds? And does the show that had the infamous motto behind-the-scenes of "no hugging, no learning" manage to have any Linus moments in these four episodes? Find out the answers to all of these questions, and much much more, in this hysterical, quote-filled episode in which Anthony, the resident New Yorker, also explains why - while he loves both Seinfeld and Friends - he believes Seinfeld is the quintessential New York set show for actual residents of New York, while Friends is more popular with out-of-towners. Also featured in this episode - the annual Airing of Grievances and a competition, run by Gerry, to determine who is the 2020 Feats of Strength Champion!  So get your aluminum pole up, have your grievances at the ready, and enjoy this hilarious, extremely fun episode while having a very Happy Festivus! And keep your eyes on your podcast feed over the next few days for special Christmas Eve and Christmas Day episode drops! 
Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! Can you believe we're only days away from the holiday itself? Where has the time gone! To celebrate, Julia, Thom, and Anthony gather this week to discuss the 2008 comedy, Four Christmases, starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn! Is this movie proof that Vince Vaughn just doesn't make good [Christmas] movies? Does the fact that TBS plays this movie ad nauseam alongside Fred Claus and Christmas with the Kranks all season long say everything you need to know about this movie? Are there any redeemable parts or funny parts in this film that make it worth leaving on when coming across it upon scrolling through the channels on TV? And is there a good nugget of an idea in this story's plot that could have made an amazing film if the cast had a better script to work with? Find out the answers to all of these questions and many more in this laugh-a-minute episode! So get roasting those chestnuts on your open fire, settle in with your favorite hot cocoa recipe, and enjoy before making last minute preparations for Santa's arrival in three days' time! Also, keep an eye on your feeds later this week - the elves may have some surprises for you dropping on December 23rd, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day! 
Happy last-day-of-Chanukah! In this very special episode, join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they are joined by longtime listener - and frequent guest - April Ryley to cover the classic children's Chanukah special, A Rugrats Chanukah! Along with Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, and Angelica, the elves learn all about this Jewish holiday not only from Grandpa Boris and Grandpa Shlomo, but also from April herself who discusses many of her family's personal traditions and just how historically accurate this cartoon episode is. As always when April guest hosts the pod, this is one fun, informative episode you do not want to miss! So light that menorah, bundle up with a blanket near the fire with a cup of hot chocolate, enjoy this episode and the final night of Chanukah, and get excited about the fact that we are only one week away from Christmas!    *Special Note: This episode was originally intended for Patreon, when we were hoping to record another episode with April for our main feed to mark the first night of Hanukkah. As always happens during the most wonderful time of the year, however, time got away from us, and we were never able to record that episode. Wanting to celebrate the Jewish holiday with all of our listeners, however, we decided to share this on our main feed. But this is why you'll hear references in the recording to this being a Patreon episode and references to another Hanukkah episode that was supposed to drop before this. Thanks for understanding!*
Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics! Can you believe that next week is Christmas? Where did the time go? This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony cover Hulu's brand-new, 2020, Holiday original movie, Happiest Season! Join them as they take a deep dive into this beautiful, hilarious, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching love story focusing on a lesbian couple going home to spend the holidays with one of their conservative families. Listen as they celebrate the long overdo representation this movie provides for the LGBTQ+ community - something that should absolutely be normalized and happen far more often, both in and out of holiday movies - in addition to discussing the amazing cast that makes up this wonderfully dysfunctional family, talk about their favorite scenes and quotes, and defend Kristen Stewart as an actress while talking about a film they all really enjoyed which more than earns the place it ends up falling on their Christmas canon list. This a jam-packed episode that covers a lot of ground outside of our movie of the week as well, including:  Julia and her family landing themselves into quarantine just before Christmas Warner Bros.' announcement that they will be releasing their entire slate of 2021 films simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters - and what this means for the future of the film industry All of the recent casting confirmations and rumors about Marvel's Spider-Man 3 (Home Dimension?) and what it says about the possible plot and the MCU overall.  Whether Julia and Anthony were Team Edward or Team Jacob fans during the heyday of the Twilight Saga Keanu Reeves and Schitt's Creek  GaryBlauman's/Matt Eurich's Question of the Week: "What is a non-Christmas song that you now associate with Christmas?" Anthony's Question of the Week posed to discuss Next Week: "What classic Christmas movies do you think are most poised to have a remake happen in our lifetimes?" And much, much, much more.  So settle in beside your Christmas tree with your favorite holiday beverage, sit back, and enjoy this fun episode which is one of Anthony's personal favorites of the show so far! Also, if you want to hear the elves of Tis the Podcast elsewhere this week, check out the following places: Today, Monday December 14th, you can hear Julia cover the Disney + Original Movie, Godmothered on NetfliXmas, with Holli and Scarlett! Tomorrow, Tuesday December 15th, you can hear Anthony cover the Season 3 Christmas episode of Step by Step, "Christmas Story", with Matt Eurich over on TGI Podcast! In addition, you can also hear Julia, Thom, and Anthony on tomorrow's edition of Todd Killian's Christmas Clatter Podcast where Julia, along with Gerry Davila of Totally Rad Christmas and friend of the pod, Michael Christelman, serve as judges as Thom, Anthony, and frequent guest and friend of the pod, April Ryley, duke it out in the second installment of the Merry Melee series! And speaking of April... ...Friday, December 18th, check your feeds of Tis the Podcast for a very special bonus episode of the show featuring April, who joins the host to discuss A Rugrats Chanukah in celebration of the final night of the Jewish Celebration!  Enjoy, everyone! *Note: This episode was recorded before Disney's Investor call on December 12th, in which they revealed tons of amazing Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars news that would have definitely been touched on in this episode had we recorded after this call. Keep your eyes on your Patreon feeds, however, because we have an episode centered on all of this news dropping sometime this week as well!*
This week, Thom gets a partner in his efforts to troll Anthony, while Julia gets another woman to balance out the gender dynamics on the podcast, when April Ryley returns to join the elves in covering Netflix's 2020, original holiday musical film, Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square! While all four are huge Dolly Parton fans, and three of the four really enjoyed Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, does this overly cheesy and overly stuffed riff on It's a Wonderful Life live up to the standards that they expect of Queen Dolly? Or are Dolly and Christine Baranski not even enough to save this musical full of questionable tunes? Also discussed this episode, the time Anthony and April met in New York, Julia's upcoming Disney vacation, and Thom's Thanksgiving! We also learn more about Jewish culture thanks to April! This is one fun, laugh-a-minute episode you want to be sure not to miss, so settle in beside the Christmas tree with your favorite holiday beverage and enjoy!
Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! Can you believe we've already reached our last episode of November 2020? Where has the time gone? To celebrate the occasion, join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they discuss the brand new, 2020, Netflix Original Holiday film, The Christmas Chronicles 2! As you'll remember, when the elves covered the original Christmas Chronicles back in 2018, Julia and Thom loved the film, the world it created, and the characters it introduced us to, while Anthony thought it was overrated. How does the follow-up stack up? Will the elves be just as divided, or has Belsnickel made these three True Believers cynical? Find out in an episode that, while sure to be somewhat controversial, is full of lots of laughs and a very lively discussion as the hosts break down this movie beat-by-beat! So settle in with your favorite holiday drink beside your lit Christmas tree, relax, enjoy, and get excited! Because, as of tomorrow, we are in the official home stretch of Christmas 2020 and will be breaking open those Advent Calendars! 
Happy Thanksgiving, Christmas fanatics! We hope you have as amazing and blessed a day as possible during these strange times. As a special holiday treat for y'all, join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they travel back to the world of The Peanuts to cover the iconic 1973 holiday special, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! Enjoy! 
We have a jam-packed, fun-filled episode for y'all this week! Kicking off the episode, the elves interview Columbia Jones and Mark Ricks from Burro Burracho Records who join this week's show to promote the Burro Burracho Records' Christmas EP "Is There Even Christmas This Year?" featuring Columbia Jones and Sean Ramos. From there, Anthony talks a bit about his latest television show binges (FX on Hulu's A Teacher and Netflix's cute holiday rom-com series, Dash & Lily, in addition to Netflix's The Crown), Julia and Anthony compare notes on the Hallmark movies they've been watching every night (and realize they have very different tastes when it comes to the plots and actresses that star in them), and Thom talks about the slate of original, Hallmark-esque Netflix Christmas films that he and Christine have been indulging in. Only then do the hosts get to the meat and potatoes of this episode - a long, in-depth discussion on Netflix's absolutely fantastic, brand-new, 2020 Holiday film, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey. While Julia, Thom, and Anthony are all in agreement regarding how phenomenal the movie is on every level, how much joy it's filled with, and how nice it is to see such representation in a mainstream Hollywood production, there is some dissent and debate when it comes to the question of whether or not this film is actually a Christmas movie or just a movie set at Christmas. Regardless of where the elves fall on this question, after walking through the plot beat-by-beat, will they upend their own ranking system in order to give Jingle Jangle the score that they believe something so perfect and entertaining deserves? This is one extra-festive episode that you want to be sure not to miss! So settle in with your favorite holiday-flavored beverage, bask in the lights of your Christmas tree, and enjoy! And also - from all of us to all of you, have a Happy Thanksgiving! As we are every day of the year, we are thankful for each and every one of you.
Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! This week, join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they discuss the 1998-dark-family-drama-Comedy(?) film, Jack Frost, starring everyone's favorite Batman, Michael Keaton! While all three elves have extensive histories with this movie, does it hold up to critical scrutiny 22-years after its release? And - more importantly - is it even a Christmas movie? Settle in with your favorite holiday drink from Starbucks to find out, in addition to getting their hot-takes on the trailer for the brand new, LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, which drops this week on Disney Plus! And quick side-note, if you don't want to hear the hosts talk politics/the result of the 2020 election, make sure to skip the first five-and-a-half minutes of the episode!
This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony cover the 2020, Netflix original holiday film, Holidate! The opinions on this movie range all over the spectrum between the three elves with this one, as users speculated they would on social media in advance of this recording, and debate rages about whether the main relationship in this movie feels real, whether this qualifies as a Christmas movie, whether or not any film set in the present should be set at malls anymore, and whether or not this is merely a Hallmark Holiday movie dressed up with a dash of raunch and a plethora of vulgarity. Plus, Anthony once again finds himself on the opposite side of wide divide from Thom and Julia as it pertains to the the idea of infidelity in movies and television shows. In addition to all of this, the elves discuss how they spent their Halloweens, Thom teases a new podcast he's launching with another host within the Christmas Podcast Network, Anthony talks briefly about The Dresden Files short story "Christmas Eve", and Julia expresses her excitement for next week's scheduled film! All of this and much, much more takes place within this festive, laugh-a-plenty episode that you want to be sure not to miss. So settle in beside your Christmas tree with your favorite Starbucks Holiday-Flavored drink in this year's beautifully designed Red Cup, relax, and enjoy! Also, as mentioned within the episode itself, the elves have a new, exciting, additional way planned to count down to Christmas 2021 next year, so if any of y'all would be interested in taking part in that, reach out to one of them via the Facebook Group and let them know!In addition, for those of you who are patrons of the show, keep your eye out for the debut minisode of "Tis the Podcast: After Dark", dropping this upcoming Wednesday - because some things shouldn't be heard by the entire world. Hint: In it, one of the elves tells an extraordinarily embarrassing story from a few years back that will have you rolling with disgusted laughter. 
Surprise! We know Election Day can be stressful for many people, both in America and abroad - especially when the president himself/herself is being chosen - so we decided to record this very non-political, fun episode to drop today for those of y'all who want to tune out the news, distract themselves from real world events, and relax for an hour. Join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they are joined by Todd Killian of Christmas Clatter Podcast to discuss the 1972 television special, You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown! This one's a special one because, despite the fact that they all have history with the Peanuts, Anthony is the only one who's ever seen this election day special in the past, so the other two hosts and their special guest are going in blind. Will they enjoy it? How does it hold up against other Peanuts holiday' fare? And is it a nice introduction to the cynical world of politics for young children while still entertaining them with the cartoonish hijinks of Snoopy, Woodstock, and Charlie Brown? Spoiler Alert - this is a very fun episode, filled with laughs and quotes, that you do not want to miss. And don't worry - no real life politics are discussed within, so if you're looking for full escapism today, you'll find it here in an episode that is also full of the pre-requisite amount of Christmas cheer! So grab your favorite holiday drink from Starbucks, get in line to Vote if you haven't already, put those earbuds in, and enjoy this special bonus episode. 
Happy November, y'all! Another milestone in the Ber Month calendar has been hit, which means we are all that much closer to Christmas! To celebrate, Julia, Thom, and Anthony journey to the land of Far, Far, Away to spend the holidays with Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, and all of their fairytale friends as they ring in Christmas in this 2007, made-for-TV special, Shrek the Halls! What do the elves think of the Shrek franchise in general, and all of the actors involved with it? Does this television special give them all of the holiday feels? Find out in this fun, laugh-a-minute, and very quotable episode! So settle back in your favorite armchair beside your Christmas tree with your favorite holiday drink, relax, and enjoy! 
Happy Halloween, Christmas Fanatics! With the weather outside finally cool and Fall in full swing, we here at Tis the Podcast wanted to show our appreciation for you by sharing a very special Halloween episode of the show in which Julia, Thom, and Anthony cover the 1966 classic, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" This episode is a blast from the past, so travel back one year ago as the three hosts discuss this timeless special, debate whether it's as good as "A Charlie Brown Christmas", share their favorite quotes, and welcome a special appearance from baby Jude amongst many other things in this extraordinarily fun episode! Enjoy! And keep your eye on this space for more bonus content coming soon!   
Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics! We are officially in the last week of October! Can you believe it? To celebrate it being Halloween week, join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they discuss the 2016, non-Christmas-Christmas movie, The Conjuring 2: Enfield Poltergeist. In addition to this creepy film, they talk about the trailer for The Christmas Chronicles 2, Anthony raves about Season 2 of The Boys, Thom expresses some of his theories about The Haunting of Bly Manor - which he is currently halfway through, Julia tells us about her amazing Fall vacation, all three elves express their dismay about It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas not being shown on broadcast TV this year, and much, much, more. This is a fun, spooky episode that you don't want to miss! So turn out the lights, settle in with your favorite pumpkin-flavored drink, enjoy, and get excited - because the Christmas lights will be up by the time next week's episode drops! 
This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony settle in to discuss the 1996, made-for-television holiday film, The Munsters' Scary Little Christmas! Though this un-inspired movie leaves a lot to be desired, the elves enjoy reminiscing about the original 1960's sitcom that inspired it, along with other old TV shows from that era that they grew up watching in re-runs thanks to Nick at Nite. Besides tuning in to discuss the merits and flaws of this movie, which is unquestionably a Christmas film, join the hosts as they reveal whether they were bigger fans of The Munsters or The Addams Family - in addition to I Dream of Jeannie or Bewitched; listen to Julia and Anthony discuss The Haunting of Bly Manor in non-spoilery terms; laugh at multiple failed attempts to hum/sing various TV show themes out of tune; agree or disagree with their suggestions for who should be re-cast in a Munsters remake; and ponder the hardest question of the week yet, courtesy of Reddit user GaryBlauman - "If you had to rank your top 3 Christmas movie musical scores, how would you rank them?" In addition, get excited as the elves reveal a slew of exciting movies coming up on their schedule, and stay tuned through the end credits to not only get a preview of the Goo Goo Dolls' brand-new cover of Let it Snow (from their first-ever, upcoming Christmas album, It's Christmas All Over, which drops on October 30th!) but to also hear four bloopers from this fun, nostalgia-filled episode! So settle in with your favorite holiday drink, open those windows to let that Autumn air blow in, enjoy the show, and get excited that we're nearly out of October already and that much closer to Christmas! 
This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony are so excited to be joined by our friends Ron (a.k.a. President Hotdog) and Jay from Flimstrip Podcast! What could bring these two great shows together? The 2003 Finnish film,  Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. Now, we do have a few disclaimers: 1). The content in this movie is not suitable for young ones and neither is this episode - the humor gets to be somewhat sophomoric. 2). In an abundance of excitement over guests joining us, the elves may digress a bit more than usual. We love this episode, and you will too, but please, don't listen with little ones near! So plug those earphones in while they're virtually schooling, grab your favorite holiday-themed beverage, sit back, and enjoy this fun episode! Have a great week!
This week, life got in the way for the elves - and between work and health issues, they couldn't record on their usual night and before they knew it, the week had gotten away from them. Not wanting to leave you hanging, however, we've decided to share one of our Patreon-Exclusive "Fireside Chat" segments with y'all! In our "Fireside Chats", one or more of the Tis the Podcast elves sit down by a crackling Christmas fire with one of our listeners to learn a little bit about them, talk about the holiday season, and discuss Christmas sensibilities amongst other things! In this episode, they chat with a listener oft-mentioned on the main feed of our show, Mr. President Hotdog - who goes by Ron Hogan in real life! In this episode, Ron shares a heartfelt and emotional story about how he discovered the show, a funny and sweet story about his history with Rankin/Bass, amazing Christmas memories and traditions, aspects of Christmas he'd remove from the holiday season if he could, and much, much more! So settle in with your favorite holiday drink and enjoy this fun, heartfelt episode that will make you want President Hotdog to appear on the show again, and again, and again! And don't worry - we'll be back with a new original episode next week! In the meantime, for all of you non-patrons out there, if you liked this episode and want to hear more like this, consider subscribing to our Patreon page at Patreon.com/TisThePodcast where - for as little as a dollar per month - you can get whole bonus length episodes like this! 
This week, the elves are joined by longtime listener Manny Torres, of the brand new Christmas podcast Feliz Christmas, Merry Navidad, to discuss the 2004 holiday, romantic-comedy, Surviving Christmas! Where do the hosts and their guest fall when it comes to this infamous movie? Well, one elf may end up surprising you! In addition to discussing what three-of-the-four hosts call a "travesty", they reveal their personal wishlist of directors they'd like to see direct a holiday movie and pose a question to the listeners to answer before recording next week's episode, courtesy of "GaryBlauman" on Reddit: "Why do you think blockbuster Christmas movies have not really been the norm as of late?" So settle in with your favorite pumpkin-flavored drink, open those windows and allow that Autumn breeze to wash over you, take joy in the fact that we are officially heading into October, and enjoy this episode which is far more entertaining than the movie discussed within it! 
This week, the elves travel to the universe of Disney Channel Original Movies in order to cover the 2011 film, Good Luck Charlie: It's Christmas! Join them as they discuss their history with Disney TV shows, family Christmas movies and television specials, and - with the spooky season just around the corner - their ideas for Christmas horror movies. So kick back with your favorite pumpkin-flavored drink, let that Autumn breeze wash all over you, and enjoy this fun-filled episode! 
This week - at long last - the elves discuss the beloved, 1988 Christmas-family film, Ernest Saves Christmas! Anthony, once again finding himself on an island alone, sets the tone for this conversation early on in the "History" portion of the episode in which he goes on his most passionate (some might say - unhinged?) rant since the hosts covered Arthur Christmas - one that clocks in at just under 5 1/2 minutes! Julia and Thom, meanwhile, have much more good feelings of comfort and joy regarding this film, fueled in large part by nostalgia. While there is an enormous divide between the New Yorker and the two Oklahomans, this is still a fun, laugh-a-plenty episode that culminates with the elves discussing their different Advent traditions and Julia pulling a fast-one on Thom and nailing a joke that he's been trying to land for weeks now. So open those windows, let in those Autumn breezes, settle back with your favorite pumpkin drink, and enjoy! 
Welcome to the 'Ber months, all of you friends of the elves out there! As the days get shorter and cooler, we dip our toes into a controversial "Is It or Isn't It a Christmas Movie" movie: 2005's Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. Regardless of where the hosts fall on the Christmas question, there's no denying the discussion about this cult classic is a lively one! So, breathe in that crisp, nearly autumnal air as we talk this shoot 'em up whodunit, honor the passing of the incredible Chadwick Boseman, and create some pretty darn amazing Christmas movie night double-features!
Happy Monday, everybody! Can you believe that it's already the last day of August? We are officially in the Ber Months as of tomorrow! To celebrate the occasion, the elves are joined by Gerry D. of Totally Rad Christmas to discuss the 1991 family-film, All I Want for Christmas. While Gerry, Julia, and Thom all have a history - and therefore, some form of nostalgia - with this movie, Anthony is going in completely blind; will this New York Fairy Tale win him over? Does this movie in general hold up to anyone who wasn't raised in the nineties? What do all of them think of this pre-Hocus Pocus performance of Thora Birch? And how does Leslie Nielsen stack up against the other actors who have portrayed Santa Claus on this show so far? All of this and much, much more are discussed in this episode - including how homeschooling during the time of COVID is going for Julia's kids; how Thom and Gerry are dealing with life in quarantine due to being exposed to Coronavirus; and what all of the elves, plus their special guest, think of the first trailer for Matt Reeves' The Batman. So settle back with your favorite pumpkin drink, blast that air-conditioning, enjoy this fun episode, and take solace in the fact that we have officially arrived at the Ber Months!    *Note - Please excuse Thom's bad audio quality this episode. Due to living in Quarantine while recording, and the unstable internet that comes along with it, it's not always clear. This will be resolved by next week's episode!*
