Londonist Out Loud: Curiocity

Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.

This week we're in Gower Street, talking to Henry Eliot, co-author of Curiocity. Curiocity is a fascinating book about London, divided into 26 chapters, one for each letter of the alphabet.

Henry tells us some of his favourite facts about London, including where you can find the world's oldest material dress, and the embalmed body which is rumoured to have attended board meetings...

Please do let us know your thoughts via Twitter @londonistsound and @londonist or in the comments.
