Episode 10 is up, and this week we’re getting in the holiday spirit (spOoOky!) with two stories about Christmas Eve and the supernatural figures who haunt us. Check us out on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher for our conversation about the importance of human connection and generosity, why Zuzu and Tiny Tim need to fight, and the Book Mobile War Rig that will get us out of Pottersville.
Where you can find this pop culture (as of show date):
- It’s a Wonderful Life is available to rent/purchase via iTunes, Amazon, and other streaming services. It’s also playing on regular TV, most notably on NBC on Christmas Eve. Some local movie theaters also play it around the holidays, so check your local listings!
- A Christmas Carol the book is available for free at Project Gutenberg (yay public domain!). You can also check your local library for copies of the book and its many TV/movie adaptations, and your local theater might be performing a stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol, too.
