Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
Release Date: January 25, 2023
Your hosts get festive in their discussion of The Hogfather. They do cave and end up calling “Hogswatch” plain ol’ christmas a few times. They talk about Death and the weirdly specific “skeletons impersonating Santa Claus” genre as a whole. They also talk about belief as a magic system, Susan’s character growth and increased badassery, and how absolutely chilling the villain Mr. Teatime is. This episode also features a “Words are Weird” segment about boogeymen (no, it is not related to the dance move).
This episode sure would have made more sense in December, huh? Oh well.
Thanks to the following musicians for the use of their songs:
- Amarià for the use of “Sérénade à Notre Dame de Paris”
- Josh Woodward for the use of “Electric Sunrise”
