Listened to this over the holidays, all alone in a granite farmhouse with a bottle of wine and an open fire.

I love this podcast.

This was everything it was promised to be, Hogeson meets A Christmas Carol. It is still the interpretation that my
children will be listening to growing up. I have nerver loved a Christmas Carol interpretation so much and that includes Dr.
Who episodes.

Gotta confess, I don't know who Hodgeson is, and to be very honest, I've never seen "It's a Wonderful Life" though as soon as the last ghost began describing the new ghost role, I knew who it was.

That said, I still enjoyed the story. I loved how the first ghost is somewhat flummoxed, but the second and third are like, "'ll do." And I'm going to believe that Clarence did indeed do some good to Scrooge. To all the naysayers, Bah...Humbug!

Are you sure?  He wrote the Carnacki the Ghost Hunter stories that Podcastle has published (which this is spoofing), and you commented on one a few weeks ago in Podcastle 179:

Wow! I liked this one sooo much more than the Whistling Room. Carnacki's blunders added to the tension of the story.

From the Ghost Hunter aspect, EscapePod's "Solitary as an Oyster" pushed my buttons more effectively. But the reading on this one plus the tie to "It's a Wonderful Life" pushed this one into an area where I appreciated it quite differently. Listening to the two almost back-to-back provided an interesting comparison, as I hadn't considered a "ghost hunter" aspect to A Christmas Carol before. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable tale and I hope PodCastle continues to commission Pratt and Shaw stories for the holidays.

Less directly relevant due to the lack of Carnacki is PseudoPod 250: The Voice in the Night
