In 2020 we're staying home for the holidays, and for our quarantine parties we have just one wish: that Stephen Thompson doesn't show up. This holiday week, we're throwing the All Songs Considered time machine into overdrive and making five stops to revisit our holiday adventures past. So round up friends and families and listen to our week-long holiday spectacular. (You can hear each of these special episodes and subscribe at our podcast feed.)

In the 2013 installment of annual holiday radio play, All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton set out on a snowy road trip searching for the true spirit of the season. Their destination: America's heartland, where they plan to celebrate Christmas with Robin's family in Kansas. Join Bob and Robin as they motor across the country in a '71 Volkswagen Beetle, brave an ice storm and meet some special guests along the way, including Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, St. Vincent (Annie Clark), Josh Ritter and a few surprises.
