Everyone has heard of the patron saint Patrick who chased menacing, reptilian beasts out of Ireland and into the sea. But few have heard of the not-even-close-to-patron saint, but all-around-awesome Irish beer-reviewer, Oisin. On today's show, to celebrate St. Paddy's Day Oisin graces us with some Irish folklore and sets up a difficult to pronounce Irish name game for us to botch. How exactly is Oisin pronounced? How about Caoimhe? Niamh? They're not how you're thinking that's for sure. Pour yourself a green pint and join us for some laughs as we get an early start on the biggest drinking holiday in America.

Exactly how much do you know about that jolly man who miraculously slithers his plump frame down your chimney every December 24th? Is he a figment of your imagination? A capitalistic ploy conjured up in a department store board room to sell more gargoyle Christmas sweaters? A 7th century philanthropian? Well yes, actually, all of those, yet so much more. Take a dive down the Grognostics Christmas chimney for some yule-tide exploration on the origins of Christmas, drink some holiday brews, visit the North Pole with our correspondent Sir Matthew (41:00), and get a look at Christmas through the eyes of an 11 year-old, comedically of course. (57:00) Happy Holidays and to all a good night.
