Beth, Ruchira and Oenone are taking a break from their relentless December social calendars to dive into this week’s pop-culture. On today’s episode:


THE £85 GRINCH


How are we handling the pressure of Christmas? What is Elf On The Shelf, exactly?!


RENAISSANCE


Is Beyoncé’s silence too loud? Have we reached the saturation point with celebrity documentaries?


TIKTOK SURVEILLANCE


What is this new worrying TikTok trend, and what does this mean for women on nights out?


And a bit of gentle homework for you, next week we’ll be chatting about May December - which you can stream on Netflix from today.
