Hogfather – The Inner Baby-Sitters Club Christmas Special

Happy Hogswatch, one and all! In honour of the occasion, Steve and Colm are joined by their old friend, Rose to talk about the dark roots that run beneath the blossoming Yuletide cheer, and how Pratchett shines a light on them with characteristic aplomb. They also discuss best and worst Discworld villains (hint: one of the best ones was in this book), their childhood fears and why humans need fantasy.

Soul Music – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Death’s Club Band (With Rocks In)

Colm & Steve rock (and/or roll) out with a rambling discussion about grief, rebellion, growing up, and the opposition between art and commerce. There’s also much chuckling over music references and and occasional bad impressions of the voice actors from the animated adaptation.
