This is the time of year when kids start asking questions like, "How does Santa travel the world in one night?" Or, "Can reindeer really fly?" And "does Rudolph’s red, shiny nose lead Santa’s sleigh?"

Professor Tim Slover set out to answer those questions while his children were growing up, and he’s turned those stories into a radio drama and book called, “The Christmas Chronicles.” We revisit our conversation with Tim Slover from last year, when they first aired on KBYU public radio in Provo, Utah. Slover is associate professor in the Department of Theater at the University of Utah.
