Londonist Out Loud: The Living And The Dead

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

Cemeteries are not among the first places one thinks of when considering a day out; however London's are not only fascinating places of history, but beautiful and peaceful places which are increasingly operating as more than simply places for burying the dead.

This week N Quentin Woolf heads to Hampstead Cemetery to meet Sheldon Goodman, a Westminster Guide and specialist in cemeteries.

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

Londonist seem to want to bury it, but if anyone's wondering about the borked podcast RSS feed, the one at http://rss.acast.com/londonist... works properly.

Also, I have grave reservations about the speaker not recognising the Chi-Rho symbol and having to look it up – I recognised it just from Quentin's verbal description.
