Tea Time this week centres around exploring a tragedy of the past. 1816 was known as the year without a summer, following the eruption of Mount Tambora and it’s global impacts. It’s a mostly forgotten bit of history, that left a very different world afterwards. Also, Dakota reads a poem that may take you right into the darkness itself!

Further reads: A survey of art created during the year with no summer and an explanation of how analyzing colour in those paintings can show us the state of the disruption to the atmosphere.

Cover image is David Friedrich’s ‘Two Men By the Sea’ – 1816.
