    #163: The Holiday Special

    #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.

Fresh perspectives

Anna and Caroline offer whip smart and fresh analysis (with a British twist for us American listeners) on new and old pop culture

Excellent listen

Very smart and fun reviews of important and interesting entertainment. I really like when they take suggestions from listeners and it's cool to hear them review such a wide range of entertainment/pop culture (phone games, short stories, podcasts, as well as music, TV, and movies).

Refreshing

Long time listener first time reviewing. I love listening to this podcast every week for pop culture suggestions and discussions. Anna and Caroline are great hosts! I feel like they treat everything very fairly and I really respect their opinions. Even when they don't like something it doesn't feel judgy or anything. They cover a really great range of topics too (movies, tv, books, music, even phone games!) it's also great to hear about pop culture in the U.K. that I probably wouldn't get otherwise. I never would have heard about detectorists if it wasn't for them and so I'm obviously forever indebted. 💕
