For the fifth year in a row the fantasy fiction podcast, Podcastle, features a Christmas story by Tim Pratt and Heather Shaw. I enjoy listening to podcasts while doing Christmas baking. If you’ve got baking or other holiday food prep to do, download, plug in the earbuds and enjoy these five imaginative stories for the Christmas season.
