Hey, guys. Jen Hatmaker here, your host of the For the Love Podcast.
Just, welcome to today’s crazy show. Look, we made it, everybody. We freaking made it through this year, and here we are at Christmas. I’m just…what a weird year. Everything is bananas, and you know what we need? We need some laughter. We need to have some fun. We’re going to have it today, because, do you know what we can count on? Hallmark Christmas movies.
I can rely on Hallmark to give me an aspirationally pretty, smart, and ambitious young woman from the big city who is going to quit her law practice because she’s burning out so she can move to her favorite aunt’s hometown in Montana and make cinnamon buns every single morning, and OMG, surprise: she meets a gorgeous, but gruff and mysterious widower, and, guys, shocker: somehow, they fall in love in this charming town filled with quirky people. Hallmark delivers, absolutely delivers, and I am not the only one who feels this way. I know a bunch of you are Hallmark diehards, just like me, and my hilarious guests today.
They are three ultra-fabulous, Christmas-loving dudes. You heard me right. These three guys, Dan, Panda, and Bran, have teamed up and started a screamingly funny podcast called Deck the Hallmark, where they share their thoughts and opinions on all things Hallmark Christmas movies. They’re constantly having the actors and actresses on the show, and it’s exactly like the treat it sounds like.
I cannot wait for you to hear this conversation today. You are going to be so happy that you downloaded today. We tell you which ones you need to find and watch at your leisure, we break down what makes these movies so addicting, we break down best actresses, worst actresses. We talk about our pet peeves and our favorite plot points. I mean, we laughed so much during this interview, you’re just going to die.
If you don’t already know how I feel about Hallmark movies, it’s a plus in the plus column, okay? They are like emotional heart comfort. They are predictable, happy, heartfelt, and that is what we need right now.
So, this was such a funny hour. I wanted it to go on and on and on. You’re not going to want to miss one second, so without further ado, I am pleased to share this ridiculous conversation with the funny and wonderful Dan, Bran, and Panda, of Deck the Hallmark.
