Every week in spiked plus – our weekly magazine of brilliant extra content for subscribers – assistant editor Tom Slater records an ‘On Air, Off Message’ podcast.

For the current issue, he interviewed spiked’s editor Brendan O’Neill about the eco-Scrooges and morality police who try to suck the fun out of Christmas by warning us about the terrible things we’re doing to our waistlines, brain cells and bank balances by being so gluttonous and hedonistic. Brendan puts the case for Christmas as a humanist coming together of people who just want to have larks with friends and family.
