Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley Explore Holiday Nostalgia on A Cinematic Christmas Journey Podcast

Vince VaughnPeter Billingsley are exploring the history of big-screen holiday movies in a new project.

The first episode of the A Cinematic Christmas Journey podcast created by Vaughn and hosted by Billingsley and Nick Schenk debuts on Thursday. It’s a six-episode series thatwill celebrate the nostalgia of classic holiday films while answering the question: Why do people love holiday movies so much?”

Featuring interviews with cast members and filmmakers, the podcast will cover classics like 独自在家 (1990), National Lampoon 的圣诞假期 (1989), Vaughn’s Four Christmases (2008), It’s a Wonderful Life (1946), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) 和, 当然, 1983的 圣诞故事, in which Billingsley, 现在 51, played Ralphie. (他 reprises the role in the new sequel A Christmas Story Christmas, now streaming on HBO Max.)

Guests on the Audiorama podcast include Beverly D’Angelo (Christmas Vacation), Jeffrey Kimball and Vaughn (Four Christmases), Julio Macat (独自在家), and Ian Petrella, 电阻. D. Robb and Scott Schwartz (圣诞故事).

The plan is for the podcast to springboard into other iterations that cover genres like Valentine’s Day romantic comedies, Halloween horror films, summer blockbusters and more, with the hosts changing by season based on the theme.

Billingsley recently told PEOPLE about meetinglifelong friendVaughn when he was 18 and they were trying to make it in Los Angeles.

We just kind of became good buddies. He was a great, 有趣的, cool guy and it was obvious he was talented,” Billingsley said of Vaughn, adding that he was aware of his Christmas Story notoriety at the time: “He knew me. And it was right around the time when that one— because when it first came out it didn’t do very well. It was over time that the original Christmas Story built an audience. But he had been one of the early adopters, so he really liked it. He knew me from it. It’s so crazy to think of, but I had a little bit of fame, I guess.

A Cinematic Christmas Journey podcast debuts Thursday, with exclusive video episodes on Spotify. All episodes will be out by Dec. 25.
