Home Alone

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals! For our 2020 Christmas special, we’re tackling the beloved 1990 classic, Home Alone.

Tom takes Morgan back 30 years and tells the story of how John Hughes and Chris Columbus made a box office juggernaut in the shape of a festive caper starring unknown child star Macaulay Culkin.

The boys relive all 5 (yes, 5…) Home Alone films (good and very, very bad), and also remember the strange things they were scared of as kids, reminisce about how good John Candy was, and Tom laments how he never got a TalkBoy for Christmas.

With the film celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2020, and a true sequel coming soon on Disney+, what better time to remember a festive classic?

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
