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.

DaffyN ,

Helen is the greatest

What are Helen O’Hara fans called? Helen-holics? O’Hara heads? Yellin for Helen? I dunno, but I’m one of them. Helen is the best, whether she’s talking about Christmas movies or sexism is Hollywood. Listen to this podcast!!!!

K Syd ,

Terrific as usual.

An intelligent, well-structured podcast about the struggles women face in the film industry. It is obvious how much thought and time and attention Helen and her guests have given to the subject. You will learn about the progressive ideas working their way into the industry, and also what you can do to help the cause.

Consuelo "El Hombre De Fuego" ,

A fascinating listen for all movie fans

Helen is always a balanced and insightful voice into the movie world, and this podcast is no exception. The conversations are always well thought out and worthwhile, while being kind and generally enthusiastic about movies and Hollywood silliness!
