Why are we doing this? In this overly long first episode, we talk about Christmas ads, including a gruelling run-down of the increasingly sophisticated emotional manipulation of the John Lewis ads that is as difficult to listen to as as it was to research. We also find out about what Christmas used to be like for children in medieval times, and discuss what Greggs the Bakers should do after this year's "Sausage Roll Jesus" campaign. Sponsorship for this episode comes from Allkatime Batteries, Straight Up!, and the St. Kilda Institute of Commerce and Space Travel.
