Since we all need as much Christmas as we can get in 2020, Dr. Blake Scott Ball of Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama joins the podcast for this episode. Dr. Ball is chair of the department of History and Political Science at Huntingdon. And he has a forthcoming book from Oxford University Press titled ‘Charlie Brown’s America: The Popular Politics of Peanuts.’
He and I chat about the Peanuts holiday specials, particularly the iconic ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. I hope it helps put you in the holiday spirit.
