Happy Halle Days! We are bringing back Kwanzaa, straight out of the vaults. Why? Because it's some of our best segments, and... we kind of forgot how to do Kwanzaa so we figured you did too for our longtime listeners, and new and fresh info for our newer listeners. But first! James talks about his near death peanut allergy attack through the streets of New York, where his survival instincts kicked in. Kwanzaa came early, Omarosa got the boot! Maybe she'll have a Scrooge like awakening? Get ready to revisit a magical journey as we rediscover and explore Kwanzaa. How well do you know Kwanzaa? We'll take a quiz sponsored by PBS, (that gets really competitive... by James) before diving into it's origins. James talks about it's history, importance, and meanings, and Nnekay will walk you through how you can celebrate this beautiful holiday celebrating African American Awesomeness. Also join Nnekay and James as they plan their Kwanzaa Albums, and future Kwanzaa movies and TV projects. Will they beat out Oprah and Gayle for King and Queen of Kwanzaa? Stay tuned to the very end for James' special announcement! 

Happy Kwanzaa!

Celebrate the Holidays with Judge John Hodgman

| 0 comments

We've got five years' worth of episodes of Judge John Hodgman under our belt now, which includes a number of holiday themed episodes!

Our initial foray into the holidays happened in our first two months as a podcast! Wondering about the origin of the Sadness Tree? You'll find it in TO TREE OR NOT TO TREE, about the appropriate time to put up holiday decorations.

PROBABLE CLAUS deals with the legend of Santa Claus and whether to create a Santa tradition with children.

AWAY WITH THE MANGER grapples with blending the holiday traditions of an Atheist (but culturally Jewish) dad and a mom who was raised Catholic.

The Judge is visited by the spirits of litigants past in the JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN HOLIDAY SPECIAL. Check it out for updates from the Bat Brothers of Die Flederhaus, the BFFs from The Long-Necked Custody Dispute and Jason Sims of To Tree or Not to Tree.

Bailiff Jesse and Judge Hodgman clear out the holiday docket in IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHAMBERS.

We celebrated Christmas in June this year with a NC-based Santa portrayer, and his wife Virginia. Is it OK for Andy to ho-ho-ho the year round? For a charming Southern Santa and his wife, check out THE SANTA SUIT.

Roland and Nyssa wanted to reboot their family's Christmas gathering this year in FELIZ GRAVITAS. Should the whole gang go watch Star Wars instead?
