The only way the season could end! Guests JB Anderton, Dean Neilly, and Rachel Pitt join Lauren and Eric to discuss a wide swath of holiday traditions and their media representation against the backdrop of one of the most infamous entries in the He-Man/She-Ra canon. Skeletor has his Grinch moment, Horde helicopters take dubious shapes (we’ll talk about it!), and Prince Adam denies the War on Christmas. This was a nice time. Recorded live at the Cards Against Humanity Theater, and we also had punch & pie, so it’s a little looser than normal. Be warned.
