In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis get all festive again and offer yet another Christmas special on the unexpected history of ELVES! Which is all about Louisa May Alcott, and unpublished novels, Swedish and Danish folklore, and the Yule Goat! It’s also all about David Sedaris and working in Macy’s Department Store in New York City at Christmas time (including manning the ‘Vomit Corner!’), J.R.R. Tolkein, medieval literature and his friendship with C.S. Lewis! Who knew!
