Happy December holidaytime, listeners, I hope you’re able to celebrate and relax and revel and enjoy what has always been a weird time of year, now that we’re in the weirdest year of our lives. For this week’s episode, I wanted to bring you one of my favorite Christmas-themed episodes from the Sewers of Paris archives — a conversation with Jose Gonzales, who found an unexpected connection with his distant father through, of all things, the Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas movie Jingle All the Way.
We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First a quick thanks to everyone in my Patreon community — including recent new members, Funky Dive, Patrick, Dillon, Michael, Kaeleigh, Barry, Ari, and Marcus. I couldn’t make the show without you.
And hey I want to let you know that I’ve started a new weekly mailing list. You can sign up at mattbaume.com — each week I give you a little sneak peek on what I’m working on, what’s coming up, little bits of weird fun cultural ephemera I’ve uncovered, and of course links to cute animal videos.
Also check out my YouTube videos for dozens of deep dives into queer moments on TV and film that changed the world.
And I hope you’ll join me for regular livestreams over at Twitch.tv/mattbaume every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon for games and fun friendly chit chat.
