As the holiday season rolls around, nostalgia strikes the hearts of even our coldest grinch listeners. Looking back at the innocence of youth, we all remember the traumatic experience of learning that jolly old St. Nic, might not be real. In this podcast, the good guys take a critical look on the age-old holiday question: Is Santa Claus real? We start by examing the historical figures that gave rise to the modern day shopping mall Santa Claus and finish up by using physics to examine whether or not Santa could feasibly deliver Christmas presents to all of the good girls and boys. Thanks for listening and Happy Holidays from Chad, Geo, Mitch and Perek!
