In this second episode of HARK, the holiday music podcast, Ian and RJ talk about socks, ska, Fox News and extraterrestrials. And, of course, we add two new songs to the list! Or is it one song? Two versions of the new wave pop Christmas classic “Christmas Wrapping” get reviewed and ranked, Hanukkah gets its first bit of representation, and RJ rants about hegemony.

It’s the inaugural episode of HARK, the holiday music podcast!
