#90-The Christmas Story & the Holiday Giftaway


This week, I take most of the podcast to re-tell the Christmas Story – that miraculous event which brought the world the Savior we all need.  Not only do we hear the story, but I share music which is appropriate for the events of the story.



We also share a new question for our Holiday Giftaway.  Correctly answer the question about the story of Christmas, and you’ll get to download a free audio book!  What a deal!

#58-ReCast: An Interview with Ebeneezer Scrooge


ACC 1-Scrooge DescriptionsThis week features the last of the recasts.  We look back to a very early podcast with a lot of imagination.  How about an interview with Ebeneezer Scrooge?  You remember Scrooge!  He’s the curmudgeon whose greed and avarice hardened his heard against all mankind.  But, he’s visited by three spirits who change his heart and, thus, his actions.  What if you could hear from him now?  I take a stab at this possibility by imagining an interview with the reformed Scrooge!

Yes, this podcast was originally a “Christmas season” episode. However, this story is really not about Christmas; it is about redemption.  And redemption is a universal theme good at any time of the year.  So, my production of A Christmas Carol is available for sale year ’round.  Go to my page for the book and listen to some samples.

#56-Recast – Looking Back, Looking Forward


As the moving and rebuild of the Narration by George studio progresses, we look back at some popular podcasts that have been presented and maybe one you’ve been missed.  This is a retrospective episode that was presented at the first of this year.  I reviewed some titles that are available and some of the distribution issues that we are still facing.  I also looked forward to new distribution channels and new authors.  And I start with an interview with new author Donna Patton.  Take a listen!

#42-The Story of Christmas


birth-of-jesusIt’s two days before Christmas as I write this.  The season of giving, receiving, family, friends, fellowship, and food is upon us.  But, will we take time to remember the reason for this season?  Will we take time – individually and corporately – to celebrate, to contemplate, to remember the One who gave us the most important gift of all?  “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son.  And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.  God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.  He came to help, to put the world right again.” (John 3:16, The Message)  This podcast celebrates this gift in words and music.  Enjoy!
