Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.
News and Views
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week’s show comes from the Crossbones graveyard in Southwark, an former unconsecrated burial site for London’s outcasts.
The guests this week are:
- John Constable, playwright, poet, folklorist and custodian of Crossbones graveyard
- Ingrid Beazley, supervisor, co-editor and ex-chair of the Friends Committee of Dulwich on View
The guests discuss their own projects and recent London news and features. Topics include the community sharing Street Bank scheme, the re-emergence of Occupy, the celebration of Remembrance day on the Tube, regeneration of King’s Reach Tower, Wrap Up London and cleaning up the Thames. John then takes the group on a tour of Southwark. As ever, the guests then attempt the historical quiz.
This week’s podcast is sponsored by Doing Something, a London dating site without the awkwardness. Start by finding something fun to do — perhaps ping-pong or bowling — then look for other people who want to do it. Give it a try now.
