Nora Gallagher, a nonprofit grant writer, has been having a very bad day. She got rejected for a grant, her boss yelled at her and her long-time boyfriend informed he would not be spending Christmas with her. Are you hooked yet?
Nora is the heroine of "Certain Poor Shepherds, A Christmas Tale," a radio show performed by staff of Philadelphia's public radio station WHYY. (Yes, you read correctly -- a grant writer as main character and heroine! Today, WHYY; tomorrow, Hollywood!)
You can listen to all of the serial episodes here! (They were aired on the radio on Dec. 23, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.)
Thanks, WHYY, for honoring the profession of grant proposal writers in such a nice way!
