One of the best pop culture podcasts of all time!

Joanna Wilson is the world's foremost expert on Christmas movies, specials and TV episodes. Every fan of holiday TV will love this podcast and should also check out the host's books on the subject.
Highly recommended

Fun

Not the best podcast I listen to, but a lot of fun facts. She repeats herself in a few of the episodes, and she isn’t a great story teller.
