Alabama Santa Spreads Festive Joy with New International Podcast
Author, Publisher, and Professional Santa, Joe Moore, Finds New Audience All Across the World - and Not Just on Christmas Eve!
By: North Pole Press
Traditionally Speaking is a joint endeavor between Moore's famous North Pole Press company and Extremis Publishing, an award-winning Scotland-based independent publishing house. In each monthly episode, Santa Joe joins forces with his long-time friend Dr. Tom Christie, a pop culture specialist who has written a number of books about Christmas films and videogames. Though separated by 4,000 miles, the pair have discussed many different festively-themed topics ranging from gingerbread houses and Christmas lights to Advent calendars and Christingles, exploring the history of these traditions and examining the different ways that they are celebrated and their impact in Scotland and America. Some customs are ongoing favorites in one country only to be completely unheard of in the other, while many are beloved in both places - though often with subtle and surprising differences.
"Tom and I have been friends for over a decade," says Moore, "and we love discovering and learning unusual facts about these Christmas favorites and bringing them to life for our listeners. No matter what the subject, we always have a great time talking about them, and we hope to encourage people in finding new ways to celebrate Christmas for their family."
Santa Joe, who works with his wife, publisher, and illustrator Mary Moore, to produce a hugely popular line of beloved Christmas tales for children and adults, is already a familiar face due to many appearances in person, in audio presentations, in virtual Santa visits, and on television. The North Pole Press produces not just colorful illustrated books, but also a range of custom clothing, audiobooks, and so much more besides.

Traditionally Speaking was recently launched in July and has already gained an increasing number of monthly listeners, and Joe and Tom are always delighted to hear suggestions from the podcast's followers about their traditions and suggestions.
