Dec 24, 2012

In this holiday episode, KC and Sue discuss Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in its many incarnations, from the original novella to the Muppets.  We discuss the historical context of the work, why it's still so popular, how it influenced what we now think of as the "traditional" Christmas celebration, casting and direction choices, our favorite film and stage adaptions, and even Jacob Marley's motivation in death... among other things.

Next time:  In January, we will be sharing our favorite geeky discoveries of 2012.  If you've discovered something over the last year that you'd like to tell us about, send us an email at, or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.
