Drabbleclassics- Dirty Santa
A classic Drabblecast Tim Pratt story, presented to you by Guest Host, Avery Alexander!

Love this show!
The stories are always fun and interesting, the music is great, and I’m always surprised at the 100 word stories and how much they can convey in such few words. Norm and the others are great narrators and every now and then you get treated at the end of the episode with a song.
Always a great listen!
Norm Sherman has a great voice and he picks such ‘interesting’ stories. I’m always happy to see a new episode show up.
