After a brief absence from good ol' Nick M, the boys are back Thin Lizzy style with their good friend Franco for our traditional holiday cast. Season six will be an interesting one pivoting to short story collections instead of novels. (diversify baby!!) We get into UK author Angela Carter's holiday trip between myth and Puritanical rejection of joy with her story "The Ghost Ships: A Christmas Story" from her collection
"American Ghosts and Old World Wonders." Nostalgia reigns as we dig into Vince Guaraldi's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" soundtrack to the special of the same name and finally imbibe the brews we've come to love over the holidays as well as some new concoctions we've found this year. We thank you all for listening and hope this offering brings some joy in these fading hours of 2021. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
