Tune in to our Alice in Wonderland podcast for lighthearted commentary and analysis of the books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Learn all about the author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson AKA Lewis Carroll, and the REAL Alice, Alice Liddell. We'll also discuss Alice in Wonderland movies, TV shows and theater, and Alice's influence on literature, fashion and popular culture. Pour a cup of tea, help yourself to the bread-and-butter and leave your logic at the door. We're all mad here.
Rare Verses And Lazy Wonderlands
Episode 46 of the world’s only ALL Alice in Wonderland slash Lewis Carroll podcast features a thrilling roller coaster ride regarding the procurement of a brand new book entitled Rare, Uncollected, Unpublished and Nonexistent Verse of Lewis Carroll. Included in this previously uncollected collection? The lost verses of the Walrus and the Carpenter! Then we’ll break down the song Lazy Wonderland by Broken Bells. Is it about the relationship between Charles Dodgson and Alice Liddell? Spoiler alert: we have no idea. Lastly, learn all about Heather’s new video series called the Wonderland Minute, coming at you every Tuesday. For obvious reasons.
An Alice In Wonderland Musical
Ever wish there was an Alice In Wonderland musical featuring gorgeous dancers, powerhouse vocalists and songs you know and love? With some aerial arts and elaborate costumes and makeup thrown into the mix? Have I got a show for you! We talked to Anne Martinez, creator of ALICE A Steampunk Concert Fantasy, about her wildly entertaining show, her creative process and her love for all things Lewis Carroll and Alice. You can see Anne and her multi-talented cast at Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas on select Monday nights. Plus, learn all about Heather's role at this year's Lewis Carroll Society of North America Spring Meeting!
What’s in a name? If the name is Mischmasch, quite a lot! We discuss the self-published magazine by Lewis Carroll entitled Mischmasch, along with The Rectory Magazine and Rectory Umbrella. We give a rundown of LC’s only trip abroad- once you hear the number of boats, trains and carriages involved, we think you’ll understand why it was his only trip. Learn the reason for Heather’s long hiatus, and hear her stumble over the words “fellow Christ Church Fellow.” We end with the lament, “Good-night, old Turnip-top, good-night!” Because we really should have ended with that last time.
Part 2 Phantasmagoria
Who's that rapping at your chamber door? Spoiler alert- that's no raven, it's a phantasmagoria! Listen to Lewis Carroll's delightful rhyming story from start to finish on Part 2 of our Phantasmagoria-arama. The content may surprise you. Did you know there are five rules that all ghosts must abide by? Or that there is a ghost hierarchy? Or that they have to buy their own props? Learn all the trials and tribulations of being a spectre, and chill to the bone at the awful puns. Even the Knight-Mayor would approve!
Phantasmagoria Part 1
What the heck is a phantasmagoria? That depends on which phantasmagoria you are talking about. The haunting theater experience? The '90s video game? The Marilyn Manson movie that never was? Or the Lewis Carroll penned poem? We of course elaborate on the Lewis Carroll Phantasmagoria, but any and all phantasmagorias will be discussed. We'll also explore Lewis Carroll's relationship with Phantasmagoria illustrator A.B. Frost, and review Lewis Carroll's possible fondness for the number 42 (in honor of our 42nd episode). And where did the name Lewis Carroll come from anyway? Tune in for the answer to that burning question and much more on the latest Alice Is Everywhere.
Part 2 Beatrice Hatch And Lewis Carroll
It’s time for Part 2 of our Beatrice Hatch extravaganza! Learn exactly what it was like to be a child friend of one Lewis Carroll. We get our firsthand account via Beatrice’s obituary of the author, inventor, photographer and Oxford don published in The Strand magazine in 1898. We’ll also learn about the special tribute Mr. Carroll’s friends put together after his death. Lastly, we’ll discuss the quality of University dinners. Were they really that good? Enquiring palates want to know. Heather apologizes in advance for getting the giggles. It’s an obituary episode, after all.
Which do you think it was?
Excellent podcast. Having read the Alice books many times throughout my life and hearing various audiobook renderings, this was a great way to re-experience Alice. Heather does a wonderful job of reading and exploring each chapter along the way. There are also other rabbit holes she goes down as she moves through the stories. Highly recommended!
Alice goodness galore
Love learning about Alice in Wonderland inspired art and music! Intriguing dives into Lewis Carroll history. Deeelightful!
This podcast was exactly what I didn't know I was looking for but I'm so glad I found it!
