The Best of Holiday Podcasts: Top 10 Most-Loved Christmas Podcast Episodes


The holiday season is upon us, which means it's time for Christmas movies, Christmas songs, and Christmas TV specials. But modern times call for some modern holiday joy. That's right: Christmas podcasts.

But with over 18.5 million podcast episodes available right now, how can you find the best Christmas episodes? Good news for you, the answer that question is right here.

We've compiled a list of 5 of the best Christmas podcast episodes ever made. Let's get this (sleigh) ride underway. 

1. Deck the Hallmark: Christmas at Pemberley Manor

Give us a break here, we have to give ourselves a shout out, especially considering that this episode is the most popular one we've made (so far). Deck the Hallmark podcast follows three guys watching a bunch of Hallmark holiday movies.

Hilarity ensues.

In this particular episode, we watched Christmas at Pemberley Manor, a movie that follows a classic Hallmark trope. A career-driven woman is sent to a quaint small town to throw a Christmas festival. There, she meets a brooding billionaire with no Christmas spirit. 

Love, Christmas spirit, and holiday miracles occur all while the three of us comment, laugh, and enjoy this classic Hallmark film.

2. Driving Home for Christmas: BBC Radio Wales

This podcast has a few episodes, and you should listen to all of them. It follows a dysfunctional family as they drive home for Christmas. Each episode is only about 20 minutes long, which makes it easy to binge-listen to them all in one go.

It's a comedy and a drama fictional series that will keep you entertained and ready for more of the story.

3. My Favorite Murder: MFM Minisode 51

My Favorite Murder is one of the most popular comedy podcasts currently available with each episode focused on real crimes and murders told by hilarious comedians Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff.

They even have a Christmas themed episode that tells tales of listeners' hometown murder stories with a Yuletide twist. If you love true crime but are feeling a bit festive, then this is the Christmas podcast episode for you.

4. Tinsel Tunes: Little Drummer Boy

Ever wonder how certain Christmas songs came about? Things like "Jingle Bells" and "Winter Wonderland" might be obvious, but what about "Little Drummer Boy"? That's exactly what the Tinsel Tunes podcast does: explains the origins of classic Christmas songs we all know and love.

Their first episode about "Little Drummer Boy" is their most popular, so try that one first if you're interested.

5. This American Life: Christmas and Commerce

This is an oldie but a goodie. Comedian David Sedaris tells his hilarious tale of his short stint working at Macy's Santaland during the holiday season.

If you can imagine the craziness of retail during the holiday season as a shopper, think about how insane it is to be a retail worker. That leads to this amazing funny podcast episode that will go down in history as one of the best Christmas podcasts of all time.
