An examination of the lives of many individuals who were singled out in Exeter and treated as “different” – not one of us. Some were celebrated and others derided, banished or executed. Crowds, mobs, local and national governments, churches and vested interests all singled out individuals considered problematic, inconvenient, belligerent, awkward - or illustrious.
Chance, circumstance and choice played a part in bringing these individuals to public fame or notoriety. Heroes and villains are included as well as many who were neither one nor the other.
A talk which is both funny and sad. Those who have heard Todd speak before will attest to the delight he brings to any lecture.
