Londonist Out Loud: A Podcast About London, 10 January 2014

Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London, as recently recommended by The Telegraph.

You can listen in-browser, or subscribe via iTunes or RSS. We’re also available on Stitcher.

Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week, NQW joins poet Chris McCabe and herbalist and artist Maria Vlotides in The Saison Poetry Library at Southbank Centre.

Chris and Maria have collaborated to produce Pharmapoetica, a dispensary of poetry based around herbs and plants. Alongside an introduction to The Saison Poetry Library, we learn about Pharmapoetica, the inspiration behind it and the connection between poetry and plants. Chris also reads some of the pieces he created for the project.
