You’d be a gooseberry foole to miss this episode which looks at gooseberry history, etymology, historical pairings and lots of slang. We’ll look at competitive gooseberry growing, the Egton Bridge Gooseberry Society and the world’s record holder for biggest gooseberry. There is a brief look at the Enclosures Act and how they affected rural life in England. For art we’ll look at still life paintings by Dutch artist Adriaen Coorte, landscape painting by British artist Isabel Naftel and contemporary painting by Indigenous Australian artist Madawyn McCarthy.
