We are pleased to announce our 2nd Annual Best of Christmas Podcast winners.
Just as we did for the Best of Christmas Podcasts 2021, we surveyed podcast listeners and Christmas fans by the thousands from around the world – both online and offline.
For two months we narrowed the field through open nominations.
Out of more than 400 suggestions we received votes for four months through online surveys here at MyMerryChristmas.com, through private polling online via popular podcast platforms, and offline through in-person surveys and phone calls.
After tens of thousands of votes, here are the winners of the Best of Christmas Podcasts 2022:

Now a two-time winner, this general topic Christmas podcast by Rikki Meese and Mary Richards covers all things Christmas with good cheer, guest experts and deep dives into the modern and nostalgic Christmas. They simply cover all the Christmas nobody else even thinks to cover. The enthusiastic fan base of “SBMX”, as many lovingly refer to it, were by far the most outspoken online and offline about their passion for all this podcast offers.
Christmas Community Choice – Can’t Wait for Christmas Podcast
Winners of this recognition for the 2nd straight year the Can’t Wait for Christmas Podcast by Tim Babb carried the year-round Christmas community vote by a landslide.

Christmas Cheer Award – Totally Rad Christmas
Totally Rad Christmas officially obsesses over Christmas of the 1980s but honestly there isn’t a part of Christmas host Gerry Davila does not embrace, celebrate or enthusiastically talks about. He’s funny, he’s warm, he’s engaging – and he’s infectiously all about Christmas.
