News and Views
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week’s show comes from the Wellcome Library on Euston Road.

The guests this week are:

  • Ross MacFarlane, Academic Engagement Officer at the Wellcome Library
  • Helen Arney, comedian and geek songstress
  • Carla Connolly, pathology technician at St Bart’s (home of those gory cakes)

The guests discuss their own projects and recent London news and features. Topics include the map of London’s languages, cuts to the fire service, problems with the taxi manufacturer, Eros in a snowglobe, inequality by borough and the success of the Olympics. Ross also shows off some of the Library’s many treasures.

As ever, the guests then attempt the historical quiz.
