Hidden Histories and Santa


Happy Holidays Listeners.  Welcome to another special episode that comes to you from the GOCO from Geeking Out with Shades and Sketch.  Sketch was kind enough to let me drop by the GOCO and discuss Santa Clause's Americanized Origins and the many cultures that attributed to it over time.  This episode's recording was plagued with technical MIC difficulties which got on my bad side by the end of the recording.
