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.

Kirsty Johnston ,

Great to get in the festive spirit :-)

This is a great podcast to listen to in the run up to Christmas. It’s funny and engaging. I’m finding the new shorter format better too as it’s a bit easier to fit in when everything else is getting hectic!

Jonny $ilvers ,

Great podcast -now even better

This has soon become a festive favourite of mine and I am loving the new format. Great interviews and insight as well as a warm, articulate and engaging host, what more could you ask for!

jimpanzee666 ,

Exceptional podcast

A must-listen for all lovers and students of film. This is a perfect accompaniment to Helen O’Hara’s thoroughly researched and informative book.
