In this episode, we discuss some of the problems we have with Christmas, including sweatshops, animal exploitation and religion. When discussing Christmas, we introduce the brand new segment ‘When Karl Pilkington Makes Sense’! Before we get in to this, we give some updates on issues we covered on previous issues and some other stories, including: Labor’s policies on same-sex marriage and refugees, the first intersex mayor for Melbourne, police brutality against the Occupy movement in Perth, Australia and the U.S., sexism in men’s magazines, vegan recipes for Christmas, and problems with the education system.
