MTP: Episode 100 (Holiday Edition #7)


Seasons greetings everyone! Welcome to our 100th show and seventh annual holiday special. It’s a real treat and an immense honour to celebrate this milestone with you! When the show began way back in 2011, there was never any thought given to an anniversary like this, but here we are and we’re so glad you’re with us!

The Marking Time Podcast Episode 100 (Holiday Edition #7) Is a full two hours of holiday favourites, both old and new, guaranteed to have you running for the nearest misteltoe in search of a kiss. It’s a perfect companion for all your Yuletide activities and we hope it will prove a worthy soundtrack to great times and gatherings with friends and family.

So stock up on eggnog and wrapping paper and get set for some memorable Christmas fun. Thanks for making us part of your festivities and be sure to scan the MTP archives for our six previous shows of Christmas past too. From all of us to you and yours – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
