Chapter Thirty-Three: Yule Night Tidings

Whether you celebrate Chanukah, Christmas, Yule, Festivus, the Solstice, or any other December holiday, the Goth and Industrial communities have all your needs covered. As is our December tradition, Ed and Justin start the show off with some seasonal songs, and finish off with an equally festive listener request. Grab a warm cup of tea and settle in with Siouxsie and the Banshees, Leaether Strip, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and more.

Special thanks to LonelyAssassin96 for submitting a holiday song for the end of our show. Send your listener submissions/ suggestions to!
