Episode Seventy

A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens
Narrated by Tim Curry
Originally slated to release on Christmas Day, this episode came a week early! Join Britney and Brad as they marvel over Tim Curry’s narration of this holiday classic—A Christmas Carol. A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. After their visits Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. Spoiler alert? I think NOT! This story has been told many times and AudioShelf continues it’s epic legacy.

Thanksgiving Special: Season 2
It’s Thanksgiving week! Which means it’s time for turkey, family, and Brad and Britney’s thankful book reviews!

As Brad talks about his coming-out experience being reflected in Becky Albertalli's Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Britney discusses how Dick Van Dyke's memoir, Keep Moving, inspires her to live life to the fullest.
