BP This Week: Terrific and Terrible Tunes of the Season

Plus: First Step Act and TIME’s Person of the Year

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer mark the weekend before Christmas with playful jabs about the best and worst Christmas songs, as well as Advent observance and how long the tree stays up. They also celebrate the passage of the First Step Act criminal justice reform bill, which if signed into law, would fulfill many of the hopes Chuck Colson had for prison reform. Finally, our hosts explore the press’s relationship with the Trump administration, and TIME magazine’s decision to name journalists the “person of the year.”
