Is it possible that the story of Santa Clause that we all know and love actually originated from ancient winter traditions that revolve around a hallucinatory mushroom? In this special bonus episode, Ronan takes a deep dive into a Christmas tradition of red and white and the theory that Santa's origin story is actually psychedelic. We explore the idea that Father Christmas – and other holiday symbols like flying reindeer, ornaments, and elves – could be traced back to shamans of long ago who brought healing and warmth to an otherwise cold and dark winter solstice. So get ready for a magical trip with Ronan to the North Pole to find out who Santa Clause is and what he's really all about.
