The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 055 – “Dickens’ Ghosts: A Christmas Podcast”
Show Notes & Summary:
This week D.C. & Michael break down the “ghosts” in Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol.”
Are they really ghosts? What are the archetypes used to build the character of each Spirit? What do we learn about Dickens himself, the times he lived in, and what the messages of the Spirits mean for us today? And did we say “Shamanism” in relation to this story?
Yes. Yes, we did.
Join us as we approach this favorite tale from a different perspective, and try to get into the Christmas “Spirit” ourselves on The Monster Guys Podcast.
Thanks for listening and please share!
