Two pop culture experts play amateur marriage counsellors as they dissect the reasons why kindness is so hard to come by, then move straight into a knock-down, drag-out discussion about the merits of Love, Actually and The Holiday.

Featuring Andrea Warner and Lisa Christiansen, Produced by Andrea Gin

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. This week, the ladies are extra feisty as they weigh the merits of Kate Winslet’s response to a question about equal pay, and expand into a larger discussion about the feminist tag — and how willing, or unwilling, the rich and famous are to wear it. Warner offers surprise thanks to Sarah Palin, then the real battle begins…

It’s a smackdown between two favoured Christmas rom-coms: Love, Actually and The Holiday. Lisa refers to Love, Actually as ‘Hate, Actually’ while Warner calls The Holiday “a cold Journey to Hell.”

The gloves are off — just so they can warm their fingers by the burning yule log. It’s another episode of Pop This!
