The holidays are a time for redemption stories – think Scrooge or the Grinch. And what better villain of our modern era than an internet troll? Thursday, we bring you Episode 13 of our Radio Hour series with Plan-B Theatre Company. Utah playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett’s new work tells the story of an on-line troll who becomes a real troll. He’s cursed and can only break the spell with the help of a feminist. But can he convince her to look past his hairy exterior and have a real conversation?

Tune in live at 9 a.m. and again at 7 p.m. MT on KUER.
