Antarcticamailroomstephanielowres.jpgThe North Pole is a popular mailing address each winter -- but did you know there are people anxiously awaiting letters and packages at the other end of the earth?

This month's edition of Your Postal Podcast takes listeners on a journey to Antarctica to learn how the mail is distributed to the thousand or so scientific researchers braving the icy elements.

You'll also hear the story of how a small-town store's proprietor is offering USPS services to his community via a new Village Post Office. The podcast concludes with the usual roundup of the latest Postal Service news.
