Podcast: Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner

The Rough Guide to Everywhere podcast is back. Today we are delighted to launch Series Two of The Rough Guide to Everywhere, with this special recording taken in front of a live audience at the London Podcast Festival.

In previous episodes, we have travelled all around the world, from Patagonia to the Ukraine, via Scandinavia and the Scottish Highlands. But in this live episode, recorded in Kings Cross, it felt fitting to focus our conversation on London town.

Host Greg Dickinson sits down with three born-and-bred Londoners: Time Out London's news and events editor Sonya Barber, spoken-word poet Jeremiah "Sugar J" Brown and the Pearly Queen of St Pancras herself.

In this discussion we hear their thoughts on community spirit, the impacts of gentrification and what they consider to be "quintessentially London" (pie and mash, escalators and the Thames, if you were wondering).

We hope you enjoy this episode – don’t forget to let us know what you think. Rate us on Apple Podcasts and get in touch on Twitter using #roughguidespod!
