Pass the Scotcheroos...

This charmingly odd, all-improv montly podcast has become one of my favorite things. Think KBHR (the Northern Exposure radio station) meets NPR, as broadcast by and for the population of Santa's Village. The main characters (elves Beatrice, Gary, and Gavin) bring us up to date monthly on all the mundane details of life at the North Pole. Bizarre and sweetly quaint, it sneaks up on you. It grows on you.

It's generally a witty and amusing listen, but with big laughs along the way as well. Listen in order; there are a lot of great callbacks from month to month. Enjoy a particularly delightful appearance by Patrick Bristow as a bright and breezy child-stealing Krampus.

PS: I love that the weather forecast is always for snow. Always.
