Tuesday Podcast 12/18/12
With Christmas just a week away, things are getting hard-core festive around O’Dark Central. There’s mistletoe and holly all over the place, Hawk seems to be on an all egg nog diet, and David’s been riding to work on a reindeer. But we’re not letting the holiday cheer stop us from churning out podcasts like North Pole elves.
Today’s ‘cast is an O’Dark style celebration of the holiday season. We’ll start off with Not Quite Nutcracker (and way better than Christmas carols), a great yuletide piece from O’Dark favorite Emily Corwin. It’s all about the folks who perform in a burlesque version of The Nutcracker Suite, and we love it because it’s a great piece of radio and because our senior producer Mike Lee has a special connection to the world of burlesque. Fair warning, though: it’s kind of dirty, so it’s not really a listen-with-your-kids-around the tree kind of holiday piece.
And then it’s An Incident on Grace Street, another holiday piece in the O’Dark style that we think you’ll enjoy. Happy Holidays, interweb friends!
