HUNGER!

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis explore the UNEXPECTED history of HUNGER! Which is all about the history of free school meals (which meanders from the 1941 free school meals policy via 'Maggie Thatcher Milk Snatcher' to Marcus Rashford and Jamie Oliver in more modern history) and Ernesto Che Guevara's Motorcycle Diaries. It is also all about famine and ancient manuscripts of Timbuktu, hungry ghosts and hunger strike in Northern Ireland during the Troubles! Who knew!
