Can a beloved country star win over a reluctant holiday movie viewer? Time will tell…

Laura Tremaine joins me this week to share her experience watching her very first Lifetime holiday movie, and it’s both exactly what we expected and a whole lot of fun! Laura is the author of Share Your Stuff, I’ll Go First, the creator of the #onedayHH Instagram campaign, and the host of the 10 Things to Tell You podcast. She’s also a complete newcomer to the world of holiday movies. Though she’s married to an actual movie director, Laura admitted to me last fall (when I was a guest on her podcast) that she’s never watched a made-for-TV holiday movie.

So this year, I asked if she’d be willing to give one a try—and she said yes! In the language of TikTok and good students everywhere, Laura understood this assignment.

Of course, because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also talk for quite a while about the very unofficial difference between thrillers and mysteries, the difference between reading Little Women and watching the movie adaptations, and my possibly offensive take on Amish fiction. This episode really is a blast and I know you’ll love it, so let’s get started!
