Resolutions!

Friday, February 18th, 2022

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis wish listeners a HAPPY NEW YEAR with the unexpected history of RESOLUTIONS! Which is all about leafing through old notebooks, spiritual purity and self-improvement, and self-denial; sobriety, John Wesley and English Methodism; it’s about power in Tudor England, paranoia, Victorian failure and medieval shoe throwing and jumping beans. It’s also all about diplomacy, international agreements and the United Nations. Who knew!
