Welcome to Episode 98! We're talking about The Nightmare Before Christmas, a favorite childhood film for both of us. Us being us, we're talking about commercialization, subversion, children's media, and racism. And yes, there is the smallest bit of self-conscious singing.

Warnings: Despite this being an episode about a children's movie, there's some minor cussing and references to genitalia. Oops.
