This week, Jamie and Rob put together their first ever holiday episode, taking a look at the perennial classic “A Christmas Carol”. First, they explore the history behind the Charles Dickens novella and its leap to the stage. Then, they chat with director Michael Arden and actor Jefferson Mays about their new production of “A Christmas Carol”, which premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in 2018 and is now a special film event available to stream for the holiday season. To close out the episode, Jamie and Rob talk about the many film, stage, and television adaptations of “A Christmas Carol” over the years, including their favorites. Bah Humbug or Merry Christmas!

This week's music: "The Winter Solstice", "Coventry Carol", and "Star of Wonder" by Sufjan Steven. "Scrooge" from "A Muppet's Christmas Carol". "Abundance & Charity" and "A Place Called Home," from "A Christmas Carol: The Musical".
