The 2017 Real Weird Holiday Special

As 2017 comes to a close, we want to offer you a chance to celebrate the holiday season Potter-style. Join us as we rank Harry’s seven Christmases with returning guest Haley Strong (@hstrong_), write New Year’s Resolutions for some of your favorite (and least favorite) Wizarding World characters, and sort the characters of A Charlie Brown Christmas with a brand new guest host who may emerge as the Real Weirdo of the episode. We are also very happy to welcome musical guests Kanna Ann Anderson (@KannaAnn94) and Peeves the Poltergeist, as well as non-musical guest Shut Up Tim (@ShutUpTim), to perform song parodies throughout the show.

Thank you so much for listening to the show. We wish you a wonderful holiday season!

This was such a fun mixed-bag of holiday joy. I’m glad that you didn’t just end at ranking Harry’s Christmases. The New Year’s Resolution segment was very thoughtful. Sirius, stop making Snuffles a thing, hahaha. The Chalie Brown Christmas sorting with your dad was so sweet. He’s got a great podcast voice!

I’m fast forwarding through time by listening to this episode since right now I’m just about ready to start Book 3 even though I might check out some more special topics first. I wonder what Tim did to be demoted during this time…

I’ll definitely be coming back to this episode to jump to 4:50 so I can listen to that gorgeous version of “God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs”. Happy New Year!
