Top 6 Christmas podcasts

Time to chill by your fireplace with some hot cocoa, pop your headphones in and give these podcasts a listen if you want to get into the Christmas spirit. A lot of them are pretty wholesome…

1. The Calm Christmas Podcast

Beth Kampton tops our list as she brings a soothing energy and dishes out tips on caring for one’s mental health during the holiday season in her trademark British accent from her countryside kitchen in England. Learn about how to manage grief and loneliness as the holidays approach while also gaining useful tips on how binge eating your favorite holiday food should be a guilt free experience and can even do wonders for one’s mental health (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise). You’ll thank us and Kampton later for this godsend of a podcast!

2. Weird Christmas Podcast

Craig Kringle has the perfect name for a Christmas podcast host if you ask me. All jokes aside, Kringle brings in Christmas scholars and experts as well as authors as they dissect creepy Christmas traditions and lesser known folklore such as Icelandic trolls known as Yule lads, Christmas werewolves and of course, the OG baddie of Christmas time- Krampus. If you’ve never ever heard about the mystic and occult origins behind some of your favorite Christmas traditions and don’t mind losing sleep over the same, we highly recommend this one.
