We have an unprecedented number of guests for you in the mystery Christmas package with airholes that is this special festive episode of Shift Run Stop. Maggie Philbin and Click presenter LJ Rich join us to talk about tea, t-shirts and the days of three-channel TV, while comedy writer-performer Daniel Maier regales us with showbiz anecdotes and shows off his Pocketeers collection. Noted anosmic Alice Bartlett knows the best ice creams for people who lack the sense of smell, and writer Anna Pickard recounts her efforts to find a real Dickensian Christmas in the States.
We loved making this jolly episode: some of us were drunk on the festive excitement of it all, some on Dave's already notorious 'Christmas Coke'. Happy Christmas!
