This is a re-do! This story was my 5th episode, back in 2017. I was going to just re-broadcast it, but I’ve learned so much since then. I want to do it more justice. So, here it is better than before.
This story is a nod to the New Year. The New Year is often symbolized as an infant, and the passing year is depicted as an old man. Jack London gives us an exquisite example of youth vs. age. Both have advantages. Both have challenges. But who would win in a head-to-head battle? And what exactly would they be fighting for?
Here’s to the New Year. Or maybe to the old year.
