425 - The WWI Christmas Truce

On our annual Chrish-mish episode we look at Christmas during war time from 1899-1999. From the famous Christmas Truce of the First World War, rationing throughout WWII and the 'Christmas Miracle' of the Hungnam evacuation during the Korean War. Recorded live at Basement Comedy Club in Melbourne.
