How to survive the most expensive Christmas in decades

As the permacrisis rumbles on, Christmas is rolling around again and this year’s challenge is the cost of… everything, really. With inflation at a 40 year high, the gifts we give, the socialising we do, the supermarket trolleys we fill and the energy bills we pay will be a huge source of stress. While Conor Pope is co-host of In The News, he’s also The Irish Times' Consumer Affairs Correspondent and editor of Pricewatch. In this episode he shares his tips and tricks for navigating the most expensive Christmas in years; everything from avoiding the pitfalls of the Black Friday sales to reframing your outlook on present-giving. Don’t start tapping that debit card until you’ve listened to this. Presented by Aideen Finnegan
