As the annual kid's 6-week holiday swings into gear in the UK, we thought this week we'd look at Holidays and Recreation through the ages. This episode's major talking points: have we discovered the cleverest pig in history? Elis brings us a completely legitimate reason for a neighbour to turn up to your house with a dead horses head on a stick. And lastly, the gravestone of Butlin's creator Billy Butlin is described. (In short, holidays in Ancient Rome, the Mari Lwyd, fairgrounds and package holidays; it's all here).
This first series will contain 12 episodes that we’ll be releasing weekly; you can look forward to topics such as humour, marriage, sport, a life at sea, parenting, partying, pets, and lots more.
And thank you so much for your support for the podcast since our launch last week. If you like it, why not drop us a review in Latin? We'll read out our favourites next week.
If you’d like to get in touch with the show (perhaps to tell us when was the worst period in history or if we've INEVITABLY got something wrong) you can email us at: email@example.com
