A new episode of the Santa Trackers Podcast is out and it is all about the Elf Supervisors. For whatever reason, this episode is titled Dummies and Fish in Barrels.
The Elf Supervisor Conference was held last week in Costa Rica. The first ever event was called by Santa and Elf Roger Star to address changes in the tracker elf program that Santa is introducing this year.
According to Elf Crash Murphy the changes are significant. The Elf Supervisors are really the first outside of Santa and Elf Roger to learn of the changes. In this episode, Elf Crash shares his thoughts about the Elf Supervisors and what all the changes will mean to tracker elves who interact with the Elf Supervisors on SantaTrackers.net.
Also invited on this episode is Elf Petey LaCroix, a field tracker elf that is sometimes featured on the Tracking Santa Around the World Radio show that broadcasts live each Christmas Eve on Kringle Radio.
A field tracker is a tracker elf of a different sort. Just ahead of Santa’s launch every year Elf Petey and others of the field tracker team are dispatched to different places all over the world. Their task is to try to capture Santa in flight, so their positioning is well known in advance of Santa’s flight and planned to best capture data of Santa in flight from the ground. The work they do is just part of a large data gathering effort that is used to evaluate Santa’s flight.
Elf Petey, and all field trackers, work for the Elf Supervisors. Petey provides his perspective on the work that Elf Supervisors do and why he hopes for the best with changes coming this year.
Christmas in July is mentioned as a watershed event for all trackers, with news of all changes being made public at that time for trackers everywhere.
