Wednesday, 1 December
Laura chats to Adam about reports that Christmas parties were held in Downing Street at the height of last year’s lockdown.
The BBCs Hugh Pym and Branwen Jeffreys join Adam to discuss whether festivities and school nativities will go ahead this year.
We hear views from the picket line as university staff go on a three-day strike over pay, working conditions and pensions.
Adam brings you Newscast’s very own – and very brief – version of Radio 4’s ‘The Reith Lectures’. It’s all about AI.
And as advent calendars are opened, Adam invents his own version, ‘the badvent calendar’, a collection of the most cringeworthy moments of 2021. Please share yours: firstname.lastname@example.org
