Ho, ho, Holy Night! This issue is bursting at the seams! That’s partly because I got a wave of Christmas-specific shows I needed to highlight right now. But it’s also because the submissions have been pouring in!

To help, I’ve added a new section to the end (heh) of the newsletter I call “ICYMI,” and I’ll use it to announce shows I’ve recently added to our database that weren’t completed all that recently. That puts the focus on ‘newly completed/finale’d/coming soon shows, but also gives some love to the gracious creators who are helping fill out backlog. (Though I’m partially ignoring that today, bumping all the Xmas-related shows to the top!)

Oh, and if you think this issue is Christmas-heavy: it is! ’Tis the season, after all.

Let’s get into it, shall we?

Featured Recommendations

I’ve listened to every episode of these shows, and proudly recommend them to you. As with all things in life, YMMV.

🔎🎄👻 • The Midnight Carols — Narrated dark fantasy Christmas story from Vincent Robert-Nicoud & Sentinel Creatives, Dramafy. If Charles Dickens and H.P. Lovecraft had a baby, that baby would have written this story. Krampus has nothing on this unsettling holiday tale! ( Complete series with 1 season, 8 episodes for a listening time of 3h 17m.)

🎅🏻👧🏼❤️ • Miracle on 34th Street: The Radio Play — Dramatized heartwarming Christmas drama from Elizabeth Hansen & Dramafy. I’ve actually never seen the movie of the same name. So, while listening to this was a welcome Xmas treat, it also filled a hole in my cultural awareness! (Complete series with 1 season, 3 episodes for a listening time of 1h 17m.)

Not-so-Recently Completed Series

These shows have reached the end of the entire story and are very Christmas-y, so I’m choosing to put them here!
