Did you miss out on yesterday’s full day of podcasting horsey holiday fun? Want to go back and listen to any of the interviews again? We’ve got your hookup.
If you were one of the many equestrians who had to return to the Monday grind after a long holiday weekend, you may not have gotten to listen to the Horse Radio Network’s second annual Holiday Radiothon yesterday — and that’s a tragedy! For 12 straight hours, MCs Glenn the Geek and Dr. Wendy along with plenty of co-hosts and a myriad of superstar special guests entertained us, made us laugh, hit us right in the feels and kick-started our horsey holiday season.
Fortunately, all 12 hours are available to replay, divided by hour. We’ve got the links right here so you can go back and listen to any portion of yesterday’s broadcasts!

With HITM co-host Jamie Jennings, the Radiothon kicked off with a bang, featuring guest Kristian Bush of country superstar band Sugarland, who shared his favorite holiday memories (including hanging out with his pal Jamie!) as well as a big announcement about Sugarland! The man, the myth and the legend George Morris was also featured as a guest, sharing this year’s Radiothon theme of his “fantasy ride”: which horse would the George choose to ride, living or present? George Morris also spoke candidly about his life and lifestyle in an inspirational conversation that you don’t want to miss.

And as usual, leave it to Nation Media to close out the Radiothon in style: our very own Leslie Wylie and Jenni Autry co-hosted, featuring guests Doug Payne, Tamie Smith and Heather Morris.
