BAH! Humbug! A Christmas Carol Chat

A Christmas CarolAnomaly Supplemental returns to discuss one of the most popular pieces of literature: “A Christmas Carol.” The Charles Dickens classic has been re-told over and over throughout the last century and Sue and KC have plenty to talk about. What is the history behind the book and the author? What’s the difference between Shakespeare and Dickens? Is A Christmas Carol a ghost story with Christmas (and time travel) in it? Was Scrooge possibly a nerd? These topics and more are analyzed, and the hosts recount their favorite adaptations and list listener favorites. Stay tuned to the end of the podcast and enjoy a great podsafe song by geek favorite Jonathan Coulton.
