It’s our last episode of 2020! AKA the most phenomenal year that ever was. Join Tom, Ryan, Jacob, and returning guest Nate for a fun, nonspecifically topical, yet holiday-themed episode with discussions like our favorite (and least favorite) Christmas carols and when is the proper time to start (and stop) playing Christmas music.

We also dive a little deeper by determining the identities of our own personal ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future and what lessons we’d learn from them, along with our individual recaps of 2020 as we fill in the blank after the hashtag: #2020WasTheYear.

We hope you enjoy our latest HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR! episode below.

Because we received such a positive response from our new short-form podcast, the YOB ConvoCast, we’ve launched a goal on Patreon: let’s hit 200 patrons, and we’ll produce two ConvoCasts every month! That means that along with two YOBcasts each month, we’ll either produce a short-form and a long-form podcast for your listening consumption every single week.

We recently launched a monthly BOOK CLUB for our $15/mo Patreon supporters! We just gathered to discuss C.S. Lewis’s The Horse and His Boy for December, and we’re reading Unwanted by Jay Stringer for January. If you’re already signed up for this tier, get to reading! And if you still wish to join the fun, there’s still plenty of time to become a patron today.

YOB still exists after all these years thanks to our 190+ faithful patrons on Patreon. If you find value in this podcast and the greater community of Your Other Brothers, would you consider pledging monthly to our cause? Just $5/month grants you access to our secret Facebook group and our monthly bonus podcast, The YOBaLOGUE — full of bloopers, tangents, and even some serious content cut from each public episode.

We’re loving all the new listener calls! Call the YOB number any time to ask us a question or tell us a story; we’d love to feature your voice on an upcoming episode. Feel free to introduce yourself or remain anonymous.

You can call us 24/7 at 706.389.8009. We’d really love to hear from you. Prefer to get in touch privately? Shoot us an email:

You can also write us the old-fashioned way! We gladly accept postcards, handwritten letters, EGG NOG, and other nifty-gifties:

About the Author

  • I agree with you about Feliz Navidad, Tom. Its not a bad song or anything but its just way overplayed. Seems like everytime I turn on a Christmas music station its always the one playing and it just feels like it keeps going and going and going and going.
    My favorite song probably has to be “What Child is This?” Yeah its Greensleeves but man does it work well as a Christmas song. So beautiful and mysterious. Least favorites are “All I Want for Christmas is You” and “Very Next Day you Gave it Away” or whatever its called. All copies of those songs should be burned.
