Here is some very seasonal listening for those wanting to get to the deeper symbolism and more fascinating history of Christmas and the Solstice celebrations. In this audio interview with Mark Devlin, Andy discusses the many intricate layers that make up this time of year and where it all comes from, as discussed in his book Christmas: A Short History from Solstice to Santa.

The interview finds out why and sees how this time of year can still have positive meaning for us today.
