Don't Drink the Milk

We rarely question the everyday stuff around us. But when you do – it gets very, very interesting. Join host Rachel Stewart, as she discovers the hidden histories of familiar things and their bumpy ride around the world.

Each episode, we hit the road to trace the weird, wild and wondrous backstories of things we all think we know well – be it an object, a word or a movement. Linking cultural nuggets and events from the past to current debates, we explore how these things made their way around the world – by force, by chance or by choice.
