David’s latest podcast – Despatch from Dickens’ London

Date post added: 21st October 2021

Titled Despatch from Dickens’ London, it’s David doing his thing: exploring London, doing a close and joyful reading of Dickens, giving vent to his deep and abiding love of his adopted city and the novelist who drew him to London.

One down from it,  (the Nov. 5 – Nov. 12) podcast. Titled Sod’s Law, Hotwash &  Kensington’s Exquisite Conservation Area, it’s David’s response to an “oops” moment he recently had on his Kensington Walk. He hotwashed what happened. Did some “primary documents” research. Unearthed some fascinating stuff that “put right” the “oops” moment. Parts of which will “inform” his Kensington walk in the future. This podcast talks about what happened and divulges what David’s researches unearthed.

On Nov. 1 we put up a bonus podcast: Let’s talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs. It’s Charlie talking about his upcoming Graveyards to Die For virtual tour. A rollicking start to our Winter programme (Nov. 1 – April 30).

One down from it, the main podcast for the Oct. 29 – Nov. 5 week:  Adam on “the treasures of the Circle Line”

And one down from it, the previous week’s (Oct. 22 – Oct. 29) podcast was an interview with artist Caroline Chinakwe of Camden Black Creatives. Good buzz, good vibe, full of life. That’s some splash they’re making right in the very heart of Hampstead.
