Show Notes

Work in Progress with Christopher Michaelson, discusses every working person’s work in progress, namely, our quest to be fully human in a working world that all too often makes us feel like machines, in which we often don’t even have time to think, and that, in the words of Studs Terkel, too often feels like “a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

Our seventh podcast episode airs with host Michaelson and two guests: Artistic Director for the Minneapolis-based Guthrie Theater, Joe Haj, and playwright, Lavina Jadhwani, adaptor for the Guthrie's 47th annual A Christmas Carol play. 

Michaelson, Haj and Jadhwani discuss the beloved Charles Dickens' story, A Christmas Carol, exploring the play's deeper themes of social and economic justice thoughtfully scripted and packaged in this holiday classic.
