EP 30: “DO THEY KNOW IT’S CHRISTMAS?” BY BAND AID, FEATURING A DRAMATIC READING OF SCARY GERMAN CHRISTMAS POETRY



Merry Christmas everyone! But not too merry, because then Bob Geldof will find you and make you feel guilty. We discuss the condescending-to-Africa charity mega-hit and subsequent 1985 Live Aid concert, and along the way we discuss how a lot of the money raised *might* have actually just gone to warlords, and we end our Christmas season with a very special guest from a German cultural ambassador to the US.
