Dorktales Podcast: Holiday Episode!

Jolly Holly Hedgehog

Pull up a log, gather ‘round the campfire with your cocoa and get ready for the Jolly Holly Day Spectacular! Jolly Holly has been passed down through generations of Folktale Forest hedgehogs—a day for sharing the year’s joyful moments, and the experiences that make hearts sing. Mr. Redge hosts this reason-for-the-season celebration filled with happy hedgehog traditions, podfriend guest appearances, and the debut of a hit holiday song by famous bird crooners, the Branch Sisters!
