Amerikan Rambler Podcast, Episode 3: Christmas Movies and the Class War

In this episode, Colin talks about two great Christmas stories: Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. These are not just great holidays tales, they say something important about the class struggle. It’s a Wonderful Life, especially, resonates with people in the 21st century struggling to get by. And because, you know, it’s about the American Dream.

This episode was sponsored by Colonial Beach, Virginia, featuring No Trespassing signs, annoying dogs, camouflage, dollar stores, hunting knives, and the Confederate flag (official and battle).
