Listen, your flight’s probably going to be delayed. You’re going to get sick of hearing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” sooner or later. Santa’s going to give the neighbor kid a drum set.

The important thing is this: You’re going to need things to listen to during this holiday season. So now’s a good time to get to better know our show, “Reveal,” public radio’s new investigative reporting show and podcast.

To help you get acquainted, here’s a podcast mixtape created by our staff.
