Join us as Brian Earl discusses his podcast and book Christmas Past!

Since 2016, Brian Earl has been telling the fascinating stories behind our favorite holiday’s traditions through the podcast, Christmas Past. Inspired by public radio style storytelling, Christmas Past provides a lens through which readers can view Christmas as festive, cheerful, strange, and above all, endlessly fascinating.
