Anxiety!

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis uncover the nail-bitingly unexpected history of ANXIETY! Which is all about phobias, anxious masculinity and seventeenth-century patriarchy, separation anxiety, Freud and the London Foundling Hospital! It's also all about Elizabeth I and her famous Tide letter to Mary I (replete with manuscript hatchings!), the cold war and anxiety about the economy, werewolves, and sharks! Who knew!
