Episode details

Michael Baumann (@MichaelBaumann), staff writer for The Ringer, joins me for the second annual Wikipedia Holiday Special.

Mike and I met at the University of South Carolina, and one of the ways we’ve stayed in touch since graduating is by sending each other articles we find on Wikipedia. You could say it’s our love language.

If you’re following along at home, here are the Wikipedia pages we’re discussing today.



If I get a minute later on, I’ll send out a subscriber-only list of the ones that didn’t make the cut. You can also check out last year’s Wikipedia year in review by clicking here.

Don’t forget to subscribe and rate the podcast on Apple Podcasts, and sign up for the newsletter at if you haven’t already. Paying newsletter subscribers ($5/month) get access to extra podcasts and exclusive content, including a new piece of short fiction that I adapted into an audiobook earlier this month.
