It's Eli's Holiday Special, We're All Just Living In It

It's Eli's Holiday Special, We're All Just Living In It

Welcome to the Third Annual Podcast Holiday Crossover Special! The podcast gang adds a new duo to the insanity of the holidays this year. We have Super Bracket Bros, Your Friendly Neighborhood Gamers, Game of Groans and The Wait for It Podcast all joining together to bring holiday cheer from the Super Bracket Bros Universe. 

This year, the gang decides to make it simple and create a bracket to figure out the best holiday tradition/activity of all time. Should be simple, right? We find out people’s strong opinions on gift wrap, fun and weird family traditions and that Eli’s dad is Santa Claus. And despite it all, we do ultimately decide on a winner.

If you enjoy this episode, let us know! And please check out all the podcasts represented on this episode! Thank you, and have a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
