    I am surprised that you went straight to Mary Poppins being a witch. Clearly at first impressions she is a Time Lord.

  2. Actually (said he, pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose), in P.L. Travers’ original books Mary Poppins comes close to demigod status – very mythical/mythological in a Greek pantheon kind of way. Julie Andrews is good in the Disney film, but the character is a pale shadow of who she is in the books. (Maybe Andrews and Van Dyke will have cameos in the new movie.) At any rate, she is not a witch – she’s much more powerful than that (again, at least in the books). She’s got all the animals, the sun and the moon and the stars dancing around her at one point.

    I don’t think you’d get much at all from Half Price Books for the prize package… they’re book club editions. But, hey, go for it, on the condition that you put the money in the podcast’s/website’s operating costs. 🙂

    People can vote for “The Force Awakens” on faith. 🙂
