If you have tinsel on the brain and mulled wine in your blood, this is the podcast for you. We’re living in a golden age of delightfully cheesy Christmas movies, and on Bah Humbug we examine the biggest new offerings this season, as well as looking back at classic seasonal favourites. Think Kurt Russell in The Christmas Chronicles 2, Dolly Parton in Christmas On The Square and Kristen Stewart in Happiest Season. Hosted by Helen O’Hara (the Empire podcast, His Darker Materials) and a rotating cast of film experts and guests, this will take a (mostly) affectionate look at the snowiest, coziest, Scroogiest, Santa-iest films of all.

Helen ho ho ho Hara

After listening to Helen playing second fiddle to Chris, but often keeping the empire podcast ship heading in the right direction, it’s good to see her getting her own podcast for the festive period.

If you enjoy Empire Podcast then this should be on your podcast list too.

The start of the season!

This review show is like a friendly chat about seasonal films that we all know. It’s a warm and amusingly entertaining show and I can’t wait for more episodes.
