117. Richie Rich’s Christmas Wish (1998)

For the month of December, we’re checking out what Christmas entries Disney+ has to offer and we’re inviting some friends along to join us. 

This week, we’re joined by Gena Radcliffe (one half of the excellent Kill By Kill podcast) to talk Richie Rich’s Christmas Wish, a movie that posits that one good rich kid is the only thing separating us from certain doom. We explore alternate realities, talk about robot orgasms, and puzzle over why there’s an orphanage for poor kids in the same town as the world’s richest family. 

Check out Gena’s writing at genaradcliffe.com and The Spool and listen to Kill By Kill wherever you get podcasts.
