Jo and Heather take artist and puppeteer Daisy Jordan for a trip in their portable respectable vestibule to talk monkeys, miniatures and making things in the dark. They also have an unexpected guest at Creative Beast HQ, talk over last episode's creative challenge and find something surprising in the dungeon...

Will all this be enough to feed the Creative Beast?

Santa in the Dark was written and performed by Joanna Neary and Heather Minor. Music and production by Heather Minor, mastering by Jon Griffin. With special guest Daisy Jordan and additional vocals from Chris Sloman, Jon Griffin, Ross Gurney Randall and Rebecca Bell.
