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 2018, All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton decided to get away from it all with a holiday cruise to Bermuda. They met a few special guests aboard the ship, including John Legend, Aloe Blacc, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, William Shatner, Lucius, Micky Dolenz of The Monkees and Rodney Crowell, who all tried to share their own good cheer for the holidays. Nature inevitably ran its course and the the whole lot found themselves stuck in the swirling vortex of the mystical Bermuda Triangle, desperate for some sort of passage back home.
