Mary Katharine Ham welcomes back fan fave Kristen Soltis Anderson to break down Netflix’s “The Princess Switch: Switched Again,” which includes even more Vanessa Hudgenses than the first “Prince Switch,” which MK and KSA discussed in season 1 of A Christmas Ham.

Mary Katharine Ham is back for another season of A Christmas Ham! Special Autumn Reeser Correspondent Kristen Soltis Anderson joins to discuss Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas Under the Stars,” starring Jesse Metcalf and Autumn Reeser. You’ll want to tune in to this one as MK and KSA discuss the finer points of… medical debt. This is not your typical Hallmark Christmas movie although it does check off most of the criteria for a classic: A Christmas deadline, a family reunion, an evil business empire threatening a small family business, a (sort of) precocious kid, and at least one Christmas carol. Weirdly, though, there was no snow ball fight.

Future air dates on the Hallmark Channel (All times Eastern)

Kristen Soltis Anderson sits down with MKH to dissect The Princess Switch, a Netflix original that reveals Vanessa Hudgens’ estimable  charm, a ridiculous fictional kingdom, and a supporting actor who should most definitely be a lead. Hijinx ensue.

In this first episode of our new podcast series, Mary Katharine Ham and Kristen Soltis Anderson dive into the intricacies of the Hallmark Channel’s first original offering of the Christmas season, Christmas at Pemberley Manor.
