Episode 89 - Merry Christmas, Your Grandparents Are Whores

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

Merry Christmas, Everybody! On today's episode I sat down with Austin Grant, Jesse Knight, & Christopher James for our 2nd Annual On the Mic Christmas Episode!

Austin Grant, Tim Drake, Jesse Knight, Christopher James

We've been looking forward to recording this episode for the last several months. As always, Austin makes his special Christmas drink, Christopher shares a terrible holiday movie with us, and complete mayhem breaks out. As always, this year's episode title comes from one of the ridiculous things that Christopher said on the episode.

Christopher and his Robin Williams gift

Last year we talked about favorite Christmas movies, but this year we turned our attention to Christmas music. I'm not a fan of traditional Christmas music, but I do love the punk renditions of Christmas songs.

Jesse and his Chaplin gift

On the episode we opened presents, talked about our favorite Rock/Punk Christmas songs, our favorite childhood memories, Christmas Traditions, family time, our Christmas plans this year and so much more.

Austin and his Bryan Cranston and Silen Film Program

We had such a great time recording this episode and I'm glad our schedules allowed the four of us to record this episode again this year. Thanks to Austin, Jesse and Christopher for making the time available to make the episode happen. 

We hope you have a Merry Christmas! 

Enjoy the episode!

It's no secret that all of us at On the Mic are big fans of Kimmel, and we are really looking forward to seeing what Jimmy brings to the Oscars.

Either way, we're excited to see Jimmy host the show.

The Oscars will take place Sunday, February 26, 2017 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Read the Academy's Official Press Release below.
