In this fantasy world of Dr Seuss rhyme, it’s the night before Christmas. Mike Hosking is relaxing at home after all the pre-Christmas chaos. When he lies down for a nap before dinner, Mike finds himself in a fantastical dream world. As he interviews of all the newsmakers of Who Zealand, a bright light in the sky out on the East Coast shakes up everyone's Christmas day.

This Christmas Day, relieve the magic that is Whostalk ZB: Christmas radio like you’ve never heard before. A creative retelling of the Christmas story, entirely in Dr Seuss rhyme, our Christmas special last year picked up numerous awards locally and around the world, and now it’s back for 2019

Featuring Mike Hosking, Leighton Smith, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Wendy Petrie, Robyn Malcolm, Sir Peter Leitch and an array of Newstalk ZB personalities.
