Londonist Out Loud: A Podcast About London, 28 March 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. Today he takes a journey on the Thames with guest Sean Collins, who is CEO of Thames Clippers.

Hear about how Thames Clippers has grown from a one-boat commuter service 15 years ago to a fleet of 13 boats now. Which other method of transport are you legally guaranteed a seat on, even during rush hour? If that doesn't sell the idea to you, we don't know what will. Could the Thames grow to carry 15 million passengers a year with the right infrastructure improvement? Plus, find out why Sean thinks that the Thames cable car could be a major part of the London transport network in the future.
