A Christmas Prince


Honestly, this episode was a long time coming.

A Christmas Prince is rich in cultural influences, from the lives and loves of historical real-life royals, to classic fairy tales, to… investigative journalism, I guess?

We also discuss other vitally important topics, like the dystopian alternate universe in which the movies take place and the cultural relevance of Volvos. (Volvo is not a sponsor of Pop DNA.)

Our commentary for Netflix’s The Knight Before Christmas is free on our Patreon page!  Happy Holidays!
