This week, we are celebrating our 100th episode of the Online Great Books podcast! Thank you to our listeners and supporters of the show— we appreciate you.
To commemorate the occasion, Scott and Karl read the timeless tale, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Most of us know the story from one rendition or another. But have you read the original novella?
Published in 1843, the book was written during a period when there was strong nostalgia for old Christmas traditions as well as the introduction of new customs, such as Christmas trees and greeting cards. "There’s a lot about modern Christmas not to like," Scott points out.
