Festive Foreign Film FansAbout this podcast

Two regular American guys explore other people and cultures through the common holiday experience of Christmas. They enjoy festive movies and music, and look at both of these topics and feature a different country each episode. It’s like a global Christmas party! Bob Baker, of Trout Valley, is an attorney for a Chicago tech company, and Mark Chandler, of Cary, is a vice president for an IT management company. On their podcast, they talk about a different Christmas movie from around the world. They also listen to a song and discuss the holiday customs from each country.
