Join host Daniella Down and guest co-host Sairah Erens for this episode that showcases three original festive monologues.  From an artist who’d rather drink and be merry than be interviewed about her work, to a mum whose Christmas turkey ritual comes back to gobble her, to a son nostalgically remembering his parent’s battles over Quality Street Caramel Barrels. It wouldn't be Christmas without a family feud now, would it?
