EP. 307 — 12 Pups of Christmas LIVE!

Paul, June, and Jason watch the classic 2019 holiday movie—or is it a horror movie?—the 12 Pups of Christmas LIVE from San Francisco. They creepily whisper about the lunchbox-sized GPS collars, the titular pups being irrelevant to the plot, and how everyone in the film is probably in a cult. Plus, Paul frightens Jason and June with the ChatGPT AI bot’s interpretation of a HDTGM episode.

Paul Scheer [00:00:00] On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me. A tech company with lost doggies and a pet shrink. We saw the 12 pups of Christmas. So you know what that means?   Intro Song [00:00:16] [Intro Song]   Paul Scheer [00:01:20] Hello people of Earth and all the people of San Francisco! We are live at The Masonic and we are so happy to be here tonight to talk about the 2019 film The 12 Pups of Christmas. We are going to go through this classic San Francisco film, a film that feels like Sleepless in Seattle meets Marley and Me and a whole bunch of other shit. Oh, a pet psychiatrist from New York finds out her boyfriend fiancee–it’s a little unclear because he doesn’t even think to know that they’re getting married–is cheating on her. So she moves across the country to work for a tech company here in San Francisco where they’re putting GPS locators on dogs so no dog will ever go lost again. And guess what? True love. T
