New Year’s Message – 2017

Happy New Year from Sundress Publications, The Sundress Academy for the Arts, and The SAFTAcast!


Quick note for our audio-only listeners

Episode 66 – Santa with Muscles

A wealthy jerk thinks he’s Santa Claus and beats up some bad guys. But it’s the audience who really feels the pain.

On this very special holiday SAFTAcast, Letitia Trent and Todd Kaneko join Scott C to watch and discuss the much-hated 1996 movie Santa with Muscles. Will the trio find the spirit of the season, or will they be left saying “Ho Ho No”? Listen and find out.

Now, over to the SAFTAcast weather outlook with not-a-meteorologist Scott C.

In all seriousness: Our studio is in South Florida, currently under a hurricane “watch” from Hurricane Matthew. We aim to have a new episode – with returning guest Les Kay – next week, but the release date will depend on the storm and immediate aftermath. We’ll keep you posted on Facebook and Twitter.
