2022 Christmas Party Episode 4: Santa Claus

Oh man. What an honor to have the one and only Santa Claus back in the studio this year. We talked a bit about Santa’s shell company, Dolly Parton, the naughty and nice lists, and a new game Santa invented that really got us giggling. In a TOTALLY unrelated side note…Dave Barnes is brilliant and you should check out his new album, Remembering: Greatest Hits Acoustic.

Grownups, this conversation got a little cheeky, so maybe proceed with caution if you have miniBFFs around.
