Happy Life Day! Join us for a special yuletide extravaganza as we discuss the most baffling piece of seasonal entertainment ever produced, the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special! Not only that, but we’re also joined by Star Wars superfans and co-hosts of the nostalgia-based podcast, What Were We Watching?, Eric Ambler and Cam Siemer! They do their best to help us navigate this seemingly endless wasteland of unsubtitled Wookiee dialogue, bizarre musical interludes, misguided comedic skits and a cartoon that’s kind of not that bad. Plus, we reopen the mailbag to hear a special fan-submitted Deep Space Nine Christmas song, we tackle some of WWWW’s trademark features (and in doing so, come up with a few ideas of our own for fantastic new Star Wars Holiday Specials), marvel at the wonder that is Beatrice Arthur and debate over which actor is putting the most and least effort into selling their scenes in this ridiculous, interminable nightmare of a movie. So pour yourself another eggnog, throw a log on the fire and gather around the tree with your loved ones as you listen to the greatest piece of audio entertainment ever created. Life Day truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
