Happy Holidays! In this episode Ken comes bearing gifts through which we can trace our culture's changing ideas about and images of Christmas. We'll unwrap collectible editions of legendary literary works by Clement Moore and Charles Dickens and use popular illustrations to follow Santa Clause's 'glow up' from a slender saint to the body positivity icon who sells us Coca Cola to this very day!
