On the eighth day of the 12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, my true love gave to me…
Today friends of the show Kimberly Blatz and Missy O’Neal are rejoining Eric to have some holiday fun, to share some laughs and some classic holiday songs, to reminisce around the various Muppets Christmas specials and Emmet Otter, the joys of Charlie Brown’s Christmas and how and why it’s timeless for children of all ages, and to discuss some meaningful charities that could use some love this holiday season.
So break out your best holiday footy pajamas, shout Hee Haw!, and join us by the warm glow of the fireplace for some festive music and holiday cheer.
Perhaps no work of art has such a powerful connection to the horrific and shocking events of September 11th as Bruce Springsteen’s The Rising album. Powerful, beautiful, painful, heroic, cathartic, vengeful, unifying, inspiring, brave, vulnerable, fearful, loving… it’s all fertile territory and Bruce covers every bit as he responds to the events of September 11th as only the truly great artists can – through his timeless and brilliant work.
In this debut of a new sidecast series entitled The Chronicles of This and That, Eric welcomes Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us podcast, Kimberly Blatz, and Pods & Sods regular Mr Brian Jacobs for this wonderful conversation about this landmark album, it’s meanings, significance and impacts.
