Here's What It Would Take To Be Santa Each Christmas

It is perhaps the greatest scientific conundrum of our time – how does Santa do it all, getting all those toys under the tree for kids each Christmas?

Fortunately we have just the man to shed a little light on the subject – David Brooks, who writes the weekly Granite Geek science column for the Nashua Telegraph, and the blog of the same name. He tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson that an operation on the scale of "Santa Inc." would be huge, but not impossible to set up.
