Christmas Past

It's the fascinating backstories to the Christmas traditions you cherish. Christmas Past brings you year-round Christmas history, forgotten Christmas fiction, roundtables, interviews, and most of all, Christmas cheer. And it's all from the uniquely warm and nostalgic world of Brian Earl — where the holiday season never ends!


Do you have a great product or service? Christmas Past is happy to offer a variety of ways to reach thousands of Christmas-loving listeners and readers all over the world, all throughout the year. To request more information or discuss your product or service, please contact me.


Christmas Past releases about 12 episodes year, which arrive every three or four days throughout the peak Christmas shopping season (generally, starting on Thanksgiving Day, and continuing through Christmas Day). Each episode of the podcast receives several thousand downloads and shares. While the majority of downloads are during the Christmas season, a substantial number occur all throughout the year.

Podcast host Brian Earl can read your 30-second ad to your specification at the beginning and/or end of an episode. Because the episodes are released so closely together, you may want to take advantage of that by sponsoring the entire season or even developing an ongoing campaign of advertisements (e.g., a “countdown to Christmas” or “12 days of ___”) with me.
