Christmas Podcasts Aplenty

[EDIT: Brian of the wonderful Christmas Past Podcast has a much more thorough list at his site here. I’ll probably just defer to him instead of trying to keep this updated. But…if you want to just start with the ones I’ve actually listened to, maybe I’ll make this list more…editorial. 😉 ]

Covid quarantine turned a ton of people to podcasting, and that makes sense because it’s a way to connect with people. And our little Christmas niche is no exception. A couple years ago, Brian Earl of Christmas Past and Thom from Tis the Podcast started a little thing called the Christmas Podcast Network that had (iirc) all but two of the existing Christmas podcasts at the time. All told, by my count, there were 9.

Today, I count almost 40. And I figured I’d put them in one place for convenience (but also because I’ve got another deadline approaching, which means it’s time to procrastinate). Now, I have to be honest: I’m a terrible podcast listener. I don’t keep up with many, despite doing a couple of my own. I’m not up to date on most of these, especially the Hallmark ones. So don’t take the ordering as any indication of priority or suggestion.

Still, here they are:

General Christmas Grab-bag (history, stories, chat, etc.)

TV/Movie Podcasts

Hallmark/Lifetime/”Romance” Movie Podcasts

Music Podcasts

Dramatic/Comedy Podcasts

  • Can’t Wait for Christmas – Tim Babb’s feature collection of skits, stories, and all manner of fun stuff (Tim probably works harder than the rest of us combined)
  • North Pole Podcast – a radio station for Santa’s elves at the north pole (updated irregularly)

Meta

I could be cruel and start a betting pool of how many of the new ones last the year, but (fine!) I’ll be human and wish them all the best. Plus, I’ve gotten to know some of these folk, and they’re all great people…just a little scary. I mean what kind of person spends this much time thinking about Christmas? Freaks.

If I missed one (or, hey, if you start one) let me know: weirdxmas@gmail.com
