TPiH 017 – Christmas Special

In this episode of That Podcast in Hutch, I decided to do something a little different. Instead of sitting down with one guest, I took a chance and set up at Crow & Co Bookstore and Cafe – and asked people to come down and share their Christmas stories with me. I wasn’t disappointed. I’m always thrilled that people are willing to sit down and share their stories with me. 
I hope you enjoy listening to these stories as much as I enjoyed recording them. I felt like these stories all tied together, and highlighted the real spirit of Christmas. I hope you feel that, too. 
One of the stories, by Sara Crow, talks about the Concordia College Christmas Concert. I looked it up, and it’s beyond worth listening to. I didn’t have time to secure permission to use a cut in the podcast, but I thought I’d link to it here so you can hear it for yourself. You won’t regret it.

As with any experiment, you never know what you’ll get. In this, since we were in an open and active coffee shop and bookstore, you’ll hear a lot of ambient noise. We’ve tried to account for that the best we can, but I also think it gives you a sense of what it was like as we were recording live. We never knew when someone would walk in the door, or when some other noise of normal life would emerge. It’s part of the charm, I think, for an attempt at capturing something so real and in-the-moment. 
I hope you enjoy this episode, and I hope you have a blessed and wonderful Christmas. Thank you for listening to That Podcast in Hutch, for supporting my effort to tell the stories of our communities, and for helping shine the light of Christmas in all the places that need it.
