Christmas Past’s 2022 Season Schedule

Christmas Past is back for its seventh season! It’s one of the longest running Christmas podcasts around, and this year just may be the best one yet! I’ll be bringing you more pre-season episodes featuring forgotten Christmas fiction, interviews, and games. And between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’ll bring another fresh batch of backstories to your favorite Christmas traditions and share your Christmas memories!

Not only that, but this season will also include weekly giveaways of my new book.

Remember to subscribe on your favorite podcast app so you don’t miss any of the fun. 🎄
