Christmas Creeps: Iron Man 3

It’s Thanksgiving week here in the US, and you know what that means: We’re celebrating another Shane Black Friday!

On this week’s show, Martin R. Schneider of the podcast Breaking Mayberry joins us to discuss Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, the only movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that even exists in the ballpark of holiday cinema. Also in this episode, we tease out some of the strengths and failings of the MCU, and dedicate more time than we probably should to a gigantic stuffed rabbit.

Christmas Past: Did Charles Dickens Really “Invent” Christmas?

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the influence of Charles
Dickens and his most famous work: A Christmas Carol. Some have even gone
as far as saying he basically “invented” Christmas as we know it today.
So…did he? In this episode, I get answers from the man himself!

Music in this Episode:

  • Traditional tune played by band at Dickens Fair
  • Snowfall: Shady Dave
  • Wish Background: Kevin MacCleod

Tis the Podcast: Santa Claus Does Exist and He Exists in the person of Kris Kringle

Happy last week of November, Christmas fanatics! We hope you all had wonderful Thanksgiving weekends!

This week, to help ease you back into a full week of work, the elves discuss the beloved 1994 Christmas Classic, Miracle on 34th Street.
Join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they make a return trip to New York at
Christmas and gush over Richard Attenborough’s portrayal of Kris
Kringle, who definitely has one of the best Santa scenes in cinematic
history. So settle in with your favorite holiday beverage to listen to
this fun, wide-ranging discussion, which also includes the debut of “The
Laws of Tis the Podcast”, as written by Reddit User Disco54.

For those of you who normally listen with small kids, though, be
warned! Some harsh truths about jolly old Saint Nicholas are brought up
in this conversation, so you may want to wait until you’re alone to tune

Christmas Past: Why do we say “Merry Christmas”?

Why do we say “merry Christmas”? Why not “happy Christmas”? And why
don’t we use the word “merry” for anything else nowadays (except for the
occasional merry-go-round)? “Merry Christmas” is so ingrained in our
language, and feels so natural to say, that you probably never stopped
to wonder why. Well, I did, and with the help of linguist Arika Okrent,
we’ll get to the bottom of it.

HallMark & Jess: The Nine Lives of Christmas

We’re going from a movie we hated to a movie we loved with The Nine Lives of Christmas! We’re talking robberies, secret identities, and the sure fire way to woo a lady!

Tis the Podcast: It’s Turbo Time!

We’re sticking with our “Christmas Classics” this week as the elves discuss the 1996 Arnold Schwartzenager movie, Jingle All the Way.
Julia, Anthony, and Thom discuss this movie, Sinbad the Entertainer,
Black Friday mayhem, what they miss from bygone Christmases, and much
more. Cozy in up in that favorite chair, next to your tree, which is now
doubt lit already, and enjoy!

HallMark & Jess: Backyard Wedding

We’re finishing up our Alicia Witt series, and…well…it didn’t end so great. Find out why, and also we talk about stalkers and tell our past drunk stories, so we’re still making gold out of walnuts. That’s not a phrase.

Tis the Podcast: Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal

Our two months of “Christmas Classics” continues this week, as the elves revisit the Home Alone franchise (for the first time since the podcast’s third episode!) and cover Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
Julia, Thom, and Anthony join Kevin McCallister as he takes a holiday
journey into the New York City of Christmases past – back when airline
travel was still lax, the World Trade Center was still standing,
Manhattan was much scarier in the dead of night, and before Donald Trump
moved into the White House and owned The Plaza instead. The hosts are
absolutely giddy in this episode as they discuss this quintessential
holiday romp and it shows in their wide-ranging conversation, which
includes some hilarious impressions and a plethora of favorite quotes
and scenes (more than we’ve had in a long time!) amongst many other
things. In addition, quirky, odd, and weird things that remind us of the
holiday season are discussed!

With the weather outside getting frightful, and the fire inside being
so delightful, settle down in front of it with your favorite Christmas
beverage, relax, and enjoy – trust us when we say, this is an episode
you do not want to miss!
