New Podcast Preview: Christmas Morning with Bran and Scott
We are very proud to announce that Scott is teaming up with Brandon Gray from Deck the Hallmark this holiday to create a short-run weekday podcast called "Christmas Morning". The format will be something like a daily advent calendar and they will discuss Christmas news, cover the Christmas specials on television that night, do a Christmas countdown, and then finish each episode with two Christmas songs from Bandcamp.
Christmas Morning will launch on November 29th on its own feed, but we're dropping the preview episode in the Jingle Jank feed to give everyone a taste. We hope you enjoy it!
Such a fun podcast!
I’ve been listening to the show since the beginning, and have even sent in some song suggestions. I like the rapport between Scott and Jay, and the research they do on the songs/artists. I also like that they are very receptive to being educated if they get something wrong or missed something when researching. If you enjoy Christmas music, especially obscure or lesser-known tracks, give this show a listen!
Fun listening experience
Such a fun listening experience. The hosts Scott and Jay have amazing chemistry and put together a year long Christmas creative podcast!
A Holiday Delight
The variety of music that Jay and Scott are able to find for this show is truly impressive. There’s always something new to listen to, and I’ve discovered so many great songs and artists thanks to this show.
Jay and Scott are wonderful hosts - each of them is fun on their own, but what really makes the show work is their chemistry. Their friendship shines through, and it feels like such a treat for them to share that with us in every episode.
