The annual tracker elf press conference where the new recruiting goal for tracker elves is announced is now underway. Please use the player embedded to listen to it instead of the live Kringle Radio feed, which we understand is experiencing some technical issues this morning. We have been told that the events today are being recorded and will be made available on all websites as well as on Kringle Radio for a short time.

This is a major announcement, elves. For months we have been hearing about the importance of this July 11th event.

I have been told that after the news is announced we will be putting together a chat schedule for the rest of July in Elf Chat to discuss this announcement and answer your questions.

Christmas in July at the North Pole

Christmas in July at the North Pole

Christmas in July is the topic of this brief new episode of the Santa Trackers Podcast with elves Frank & Crash.

There’s a big difference between Elf Frank and Elf Crash. Crash is a very social elf who participates in most big events at the North Pole, while Elf Frank tends to hold back a little due to his duties in reporting the news. So Crash hosts the podcast this time around and speaks more to the events of Christmas in July at the North Pole.

The bigger question of course is how elves who are NOT at the North Pole and how they can celebrate Christmas in July. Elf Crash has some things for you to consider if you find yourself in this situation.

In all, it’s a quick episode with some good ideas. Enjoy.

Dummies and Fish in Barrels

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.

Focus Groups and Costa Rican Tacos

Focus groups and Costa Rican Tacos are talked about in this wide ranging new episode of the Santa Trackers Podcast. Elf Frank and Elf Crash try to get down to Santa’s strategy for this year. But Crash is especially feeling in the dark.

Santa and Elf Roger have led an effort to completely redesign the SantaTrackers.net website and to purge the Elf Community of “deadbeat” elves. But Elf Crash suspects the big changes are still ahead and it begins with this first-ever Elf Supervisor gathering in Costa Rica coming up soon.

Elf Crash was just assigned to help train that group but he has no idea what to say to them. In this episode elves Frank & Crash explore what they do know and what it can all mean for the months ahead.

Crash also shares some insights into Elf Max, who he met in person just a few months ago. He tells a great fishing story as well as the story of Elf Max’s elf journey.

 

Changes in the Elf World

Changes in the Elf World

Changes in the Elf World are afoot due to a report submitted to Santa by Elf Roger Star.

The report showed that very few of the 200 million registered elves the program has gathered in the past five years are actually sending in tracker reports to help track Santa for Santa. The topic has been a big part of the conversation between Santa and Elf Roger and it has already led to many changes. The website changeover is indicative of the changes yet to be announced and rumors in North Pole media have started to make some elves nervous.

In this episode Elf Frank Myrrh grills Elf Crash Murphy about what he knows and what he can say about the changes to come. Elf Crash explains that after 5 years Santa remains committed to the program but that changes are inevitable.

Parents and Belief in Santa

Parents and Belief in Santa
/

Parents and belief in Santa is the topic of this newest episode. Based on several messages recently received here at SantaTrackers.net this candid discussion covers many difficult questions.

We have the case of one boy, age 11, who is being bullied by his older brother for believing in Santa. How would you handle this situation?

Elf Frank Myrrh talks with Elf Crash Murphy about the dynamics of belief in Santa in families. Siblings rarely agree on anything but the situation where some believe in Santa while others do not can make Christmas – and tracking Santa – interesting.

But even more perplexing is the case of Jillian, who is 15 years old, having to deal with her Mom saying Santa is not real and what she should do about it. Her mother says she has been buying presents, stuffing stockings and writing letters from Santa for all of Jillian’s life. Jillian just doesn’t know what to do about it.

Frank is a little surprised at Elf Crash’s answers to that situation.

And finally, the question of what do you do when you believe in Santa but he never shows up to your house is addressed.

These are all complicated issues.

This is the first in a couple podcasts answering real questions from Santa trackers that Frank and Crash hope to push out before Santa takes off this year.

This biggest question in this episode come from Elf Frankie in England: What do I do if I see Santa in my house?

Frank and Crash do not necessarily agree with how to best answer this question. Crash thinks Frankie should say something and Frank — well, Frank just can’t handle it.

Frank and Crash also discuss how to help young, talent elves develop in their elf careers.

Elf Crusader, the North Pole’s Official Naturalist Elf, and Santa tracker elf, City Captain and Christmas podcaster from Minnesota takes to the microphone is this his first official podcast for SantaTrackers.net.

In this episode Crusader has a personal conversation with Elf Crash Murphy and, boy, is it an eye opener.

Crusader digs deep into Crash’s background. He learns that Crash was taken in by Santa when Crash lost his parents at a very young age. Crash had some difficulties as a teen but Santa helped him get his education and then set him to work as an elf – shoveling reindeer poop. The journey from a pooper-scooper to the now world-famous elf who follows Santa around the world to report for North Pole Radio News is explored.

Crash also answer questions of a personal nature to Crusader – such as why Santa never visited Crusader last year and how that happens.

In all, this is an eye-popping interview with loads of new information that any tracker elf would appreciate.

Enjoy.

Secrets of Santa’s Flight

Secrets of Santa's Flight

Secrets of Santa’s Flight is the topic of this episode of the Santa Tracker Podcast – which is really a follow up to the North Pole Podcast episode that Elf Crash and I did over the weekend for SantaUpdate.com.

In that episode we tried to answer the question of how Santa gets around the world in one night. Elf Crash caused a minor controversy with his opinions of non-believers.

In this episode, Elf Crash is even more strong in his opinions. We discuss why he might or might not be wrong about non-believers and how answering their questions is quite different than answering the questions of genuine Santa tracker elves.

We also explore a number of those questions in the episode. Real questions coming from real tracker elves go far in revealing more of the secrets of Santa’s flight.

New Podcast Talks About Talking About Reindeer

New Podcast Talks About Talking About Reindeer

Fellow elves, awake! There is a new podcast out! I know the news has been a little slow of late but you’ll be happy to know that Frank and Crash have been in the studio talking reindeer and they think you should be talking reindeer, too. You can listen to the latest episode of the Santa Tracker Podcast at this link.

I’m glad they are talking about this. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

I’ve been working with a number of tracker elves who are a little discouraged about elf recruiting. Many are bringing it up at school and they report getting teased in some cases and even bullied by some. Talking about Santa and elves and Christmas in September can be hard.

If that’s the case for you then this episode may help you.

I haven’t seen yet what the September numbers look like but I can tell you I hear nothing but positive things about the recruiting. You guys are doing good work. So there’s nothing to be discouraged about.

I find it interesting in this episode as well that Crash talks about some of the places that Santa is going in the world right now, just because he’s got many of his reindeer back.

Take a listen to it!
