Episode 9: Merry Bearmas

Why is it called Bearmas you ask? … I actually have no idea why it’s called that. What is a Bearmas? Does it have anything to do with bears? Or maybe Christmas? Or maybe it has nothing to do with either and is its own glorious entity in itself? Come listen to this podcast that answers none of these questions and more.
