The latest episode of the North Pole Podcast has only been online for about 12 hours or so. But the response to it has been robust – even “frenzied” as Elf Hugo in the North Pole Post Office put it.
“We are getting busier but this is way early for this kind of mail,” said Hugo, postmaster at the North Pole. “I listened to the episode and I did not hear anything shocking or surprising in it. But you never know what is going to get people going.”
The episode addresses one of the most common questions we receive here at the North Pole: “How does Santa get around the world in one night?”
Elves Frank Myrrh and Crash Murphy of North Pole Radio News take on the topic. You can hear the podcast at this link.
Elf Crash Murphy says his email has “gone crazy” today. “I normally don’t get a ton of email on a Sunday but today is off the chart for any day of the week. I would say close to 40,000 messages have come in.”
What are they talking about?
“Well, I guess I said something about people who don’t believe in Santa and what I think should happen to them on Christmas morning or something,” Elf Crash said. “I didn’t think it was all that unusual of a question, honestly, but when Frank asked me about them I just said what I thought. I guess a few of them got mad or something. But I have to ask this now – if they don’t believe in Santa Claus, why would they care what I said?”
We do not know it is because of this latest episode of the North Pole Podcast or not, but registrations for Tracker Elves at SantaTrackers.net are exploding today as well.
