The War On Christmas (Part 2) w/ Michael Hobbes

It’s December 24nd. This Christmas week, we’re doing something a little different — a two-part special on the history of The War on Christmas. In part two, Jody and Nikki are joined by Michael Hobbes of “You’re Wrong About” to go back in time and explore the surprising roots of the War on Christmas, from the Puritans to the Egg Nog Riot to the Red Scare. Michael Hobbes’s podcasts are “You’re Wrong About” and “Maintenance Phase.” Find a transcript of this episode at: This Day In Esoteric Political History is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.
