Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom for the last time this year as they take a look at the science of Christmas! Where did it come from and where did it originate? How can we be more environmentally friendly this Christmas also? After some historical exploration behind the meaning of Christmas the boys study the science of Santa! How does he get all around the world in one night and deliver all the presents? Does he use warp drives? Does he teleport? Does he clone himself which results in a Arctic based Santa Clause Hunger Games event? Find out the possible theories for how he knows which presents we all get and how he gets them to our houses! A very merry Christmas and happy holidays to every one of you! Music by: Joakim Karud –
