The Ladies of Garbagetown are here to tell Christmas stories, and Jennie’s sad mess of a Christmas story is saved by the last minute appearance of Molly Wood with a tragicomic Christmas tale. All that and STAR WARS!

And PLEASE go watch the amazing a cappella Star Wars by The Roots & Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Star Wars. It’s magic.
And of course check out our sister show “Hooray for Garbagetown” with the super talented Jackie Vleck and Sarah Jean Kruchowski! It’s the dark side of Hollywood…and the light.
Thanks to our brand new patrons for their support!

Behind the story: We did it again! Three down, one to go! The audio levels were rough in this one because I was getting sick and neglected to notice that my mic was super loud on BOTH channels of audio, thereby blasting my in studio guests into oblivion. And then Skype. YEESH! But the stories are awesome and that’s what counts!
