Maggi's Mary Wollstonecraft, Princess Diana and A Plunge Into The Christmas Ads
Listen now
Description
Brace yourself: Emily in Paris is back for a second series. More importantly: the Christmas ads have dropped! We discuss some of them, and why a great Christmas ad doesn't actually.... have to have anything to do with Christmas. Also today, we discuss Maggi Hambling's controversial nude statue of founding feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, Rupert Everett's new autobiography, a documentary about Vivienne Westwood and the punk movement, and we deep dive into the Princess Diana content of the last week: the two-parter on ITV, with staggering allegations made against Martin Bashir, and the new series of The Crown, starring the magnificent Emma Corrin as Diana.  E-mail thehighlowshow@gmail.com Tweet @thehighlowshow Shop thehighlowshop.com - 100% of profits for November go to Fare Share  Links To The End Of The World, by Rupert Everett The Crown series 4 now on Netflix The Diana Interview: Revenge of a Princess, on ITV Player What I've learned from 7 years of being single, by Camille Charriere for Harper's Bazaar https://www.harpersbazaar.com/uk/culture/a34587107/camille-charriere-love-in-your-30s/ How long Covid forced me to confront my past and my identity, by Kathryn Bromwich for The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/nov/08/how-long-covid-forced-me-to-confront-my-past-and-my-identity Vivienne Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist  Candice Carty-Williams on The Adam Buxton Podcast, Glenn Close on WTF, Keir Starmer on Desert Island Discs and What Trump Might Do In His Remaining Weeks in Office on Fresh Air    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
