Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London, as 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, N Quentin's guest is Dominic Reid — pageant master at the Lord Mayor's Show. The two discuss the origins of the Lord Mayor's Show, the evolution of tensions between Mayor and monarch, and those rare occasions on which the annual pageant didn't happen — such as the year of the Great Fire, and the funeral of the Duke of Wellington.
