Londonist Out Loud: A Podcast About London, 25 October 2013

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 now also available on Stitcher.

Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. Today's guest is writer Ben Pedroche, author of Do Not Alight Here: Walking London's Lost Underground and Railway Stations, London's Lost Power Stations and Gasworks, and Working the London Underground.

The main topic of discussion is lost London, with a focus on the capital's disused power stations and abandoned tube stations. How did Victorian experimentation influence the architecture of the time? What is it like inside Battersea Power Station? What interesting facts can be extracted for subterranean London? All will be revealed.
