A Christmas Carol 1: Humbug!

Wooooo! Woooooooo! Woooooooooo! It's time to combine two of Shark Liver Oil's favourite things - christmas and ghost stories! Yes, it's the first of a three part extravaganza about the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. Ebeneezer Scrooge is a brooding, anti-yuletilde eco-warrior who abhors fossil fuel energy. Jacob Marley is an insubstantial wispy wonder with a fetish for clanking chains and ghostly voyeurism. And Mr G. Christmas-Past is a nostalgia loving smarty pants with a flickering candle flame for a head. With characters like that, it can't fail to be good!

If you've any suggestions for modern re-tellings of A Christmas Carol for us to talk about during our christmas special in a couple of weeks, send them in to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com
