John and Craig revisit ghosts of Christmas past in our Holiday Live Show 2018. They’re joined by Pamela Ribon (Ralph Breaks the Internet, Smurfs: The Lost Village), Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Into the Spiderverse, The Lego Movie), Zoanne Clack (Grey’s Anatomy) and Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (Family Guy, The Orville) to discuss writing animated features, breaking into television, and how to disappoint your parents.

We also rescue another genre, the big-screen holiday comedy, by playing a game about Christmas movies. Then we answer audience questions about useful notes and being the only woman in the room.

In our bonus segment for premium members we discuss New Year’s Resolutions, our conversation includes defining ‘the line of action,’ constructing successful goals, and unraveling the nature of shame.
