Mary Katharine Ham and Bethany Mandel have a new Clubhouse obsession—spurred by the anti-speech scolds at the NYT who don’t like it. How can we normalize doing normal things post-pandemic as vaccines roll out and change the game?
Finding balance in the pandemic debate has always been hard, but the Ladybrains discuss making their own risk evaluations, changing them with the facts on the ground, and honoring the gifts of a miracle vaccine and every single day we’re given. Enjoy our unfettered conversation 😉
Mark Katharine Ham and Kelly Maher know that NOW is the time to shut our brains off and take a break—and what better way to escape than to fall into a world of Lords, Ladies… and a Duke who loves to take his shirt off? Is it historically accurate? No. Should you watch it anyway? Probably. (SPOILER ALERT!!!@)
Mary Katharine Ham and Vic Matus of the SubBeacon discuss “Christmas Comes Twice,” which if you know Vic was an unwise title to give him.

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 and Ryan Manion discuss Hallmark’s “USS Christmas,” the classic love story of a reporter and a fighter pilot connecting on a Navy ship’s Christmas cruise for civilians.

As a longtime advocate for military families at the Travis Manion Foundation, Ryan offers special insight on this movie while MK covers the perspective of a single 30-something reporter lady. Ryan is the author of “The Knock at The Door: Three Gold Star Families Bonded by Grief and Purpose” and the host of “The Resilient Life” podcast.
