I've never really been much into podcasting. Most of the stuff I've listened to has been pretty amateur hour. I think it's one of these things that gets hot online and will die off in short order. Remember, it's only been around for a year and already I think it's on about minute 12 of its fame.

I could be wrong and lord know predicting internet trends is not something for people who hate being wrong.

Still, I thought this might be cute. For those of you who have small kids and find they're already getting wired up for the big day, Santa has a podcast. It's updated daily, so your kids can find out what's happening with the big guy. Although hopefully not with this particular Santa.

Then again, when I show this to Cathy, I might end up downloading it everyday. I live with a serious Christmas freak. And with the challenges we're going to be having this Christmas - her first away from her family, trying to find gifts for one another, dealing with the fact that everyone but us seems to be leaving Iqaluit for the holidays - I'm going to have to find something to cheer her up. This might be silly enough to do it.
