One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa explore our feelings about being the designated Finder of Things at home. How can we help our kids learn to keep track of their own sh*t? Especially when we’ve probably secretly thrown at least 25% of it in the trash when they weren’t looking? Whoops! Plus, Biz has a case of the mummies and Theresa misses routine. Happy Holidays! We’ll be back the first week of January with a very special holiday genius-fail spectacular.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 395: Wreathing Havoc

| 0 comments

It’s our last episode of 2018! We’ll be off next week for the holidays. Paul files suit against his wife, Lizzie. Paul loves to decorate for Christmas but Lizzie doesn't. He wants to add more to their home in order to create some Christmas magic for their kid. But Lizzie thinks their tree is enough. Who's right? Who's wrong?

EVIDENCE

Excerpt from the article Lizzie submitted about the Caganer:

"Moreover, in certain regions of Spain, for example in Catalonia, a Caganer is included in the scene – the figurine of a defecating man. The reason for this is unknown, but it’s purpose might simply be to have a laugh or to bring good luck, as the Caganer is fertilizing the earth.

The Catalonian culture features another lovely tradition that has to do with faeces. A fortnight before Christmas, a caga tió, or ‘defecating log’ is created... For this, a small log is hollowed out and given a face.

In the fourteen days that precede Christmas, the log is ‘fed’ with sweets, fruits and nuts. At Christmas eve, the whole family gathers to sings traditional songs during which the log is hit with a stick. When beaten hard enough, the log will ‘defecate’ and spill its contents.”

The full article on Christmas Decorations and Cultural Differences can be found here.

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!

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?
