#1640 I thought this was what you wanted?


Does Christmas content in December disturb or excite you? The All The Best team is divided on the issue. Some love riding the Christmas wave all the way to December 25th, others wish they could mute every overbearing TV ad, silly season radio segment, or cheesy holiday movie.

In this week’s episode we decided to please all parties, by bringing you one Christmas story and one decidedly un-christmasy story, both under the theme: ‘I thought this was what you wanted?’.

‘Santa’s Biggest Little Helper’ by Tegan Nicholls

This week we’re going to the very heart of christmas land: shopping centres. We meet the 21 year old trapped in the eye of the storm, trying to give families what they want: the perfect family photo with Santa.

‘Screw your buy-me-a-drink Feminism’ by Jessie Perrin and Selena Shannon

Jessie Perrin has met too many women who are fed up with a certain behaviour they keep experiencing from men in the dating world. It begs the question, do these men mistakenly think this is what women want?

So Jessie started collecting stories, and with Selena Shannon built a small window into a big, complicated world. Feminism on a first date.
