We take a trip to England’s green and pleasant land and discover a garden full of plants that can kill – including one you probably had on your last lamb roast. We revisit the 19th-century craze for deadly arsenic-laced wallpaper (just don’t inhale), and the brief medical mania for “lobotomy mobiles”, which is every bit as terrifying as it sounds. There are zombie parasites, terrorist queens, venomous snakes and soldiers’ musings, too. Please do not try any of this at home.

Happily, we have some non-lethal stories as well. A Colombian tailor whose bulletproof clothes will keep you safe and looking sharp. A ‘garbage anthropologist’ who knows NYC like the back of her bin lid. And a bunch of modern-day Vikings sailing to North America to prove an old Nordic legend.
