    #163: The Holiday Special

    This is the last ever SRSLY, and we couldn't go without one final festive special. In this episode, Caroline and Anna celebrate and analyse the 2006 Nancy Meyers Christmas film The Holiday, with some help from friends of the show Simran Hans, Stephanie Boland, India Bourke and Nick Hilton. We discuss the presentation of work, love and home in the film, as well as sharing our favourite/silliest moments.
    Anna's 2017 piece on the film: I re-watched The Holiday and I have a lot of questions.

Miss this every week!

This podcast being closed has left a gaping hole in the market. It was a feminist, cultured podcast that attracted a lighter audience to important social and political issues.

Please come back!!!

I have been listening to this podcast since the beginning, it was genuinely one of the highlights of my week. There are loads of pop culture and arts podcasts but barely any that are female led INTELLIGENT, structured and researched discussions on everything from arts exhibitions and theatre to pop albums and cult tv shows. Most of them just ramble on but I always felt I was actually learning something new either about things I already like or in discovering a hidden gems I’m going to have to go through the back catalogue now I guess but this was such a popular podcast with a dedicated fan base. The people I met at the live events and quizzes are testament to the fact that this podcast NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT BACK!!

Yes yes yes

Really great- enjoyable even if you haven’t listened/ watched/ read what they’re talking about but also good to get recommendations. Not pretentious but just highbrow enough. It’s like the start of ‘The High Low’ podcast for a whole episode- lovely.
