It's our sort-of-mostly holiday episode!

Features interviews with Joel Waldfogel, author of Scroogenomics, and Carole Slotterback, author of The Psychology of Santa.

Sanden talks with Ethan Trex from Mental Floss on global Santa alternatives from the creepy to the offensive to the scatological.

Plus, Jeff reworks The Night Before Christmas with health-care reform and Joe Lieberman in mind (video).

And in non-holiday news, cartoonist David Gillette (who's been cartooning the climate change summit all week) gives his take on what Copenhagen all adds up to.
