Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London, as recently recommended by The Telegraph.
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. Today's guest is Rachel Kolsky, award-winning Blue Badge Guide, who works for Go London Tours. She takes us around Whitechapel and tells the story of a few philanthropic women who made a difference to the welfare and culture of the East End. Many of their stories can be found at the Women's Library, which was previously in Whitechapel and has now moved to London School of Economics.
The photo we used for the article shows London City skyline seen from Valance Gardens in Whitechapel. The photo was taken by Louis Berk, on Flickr.
Producer and presenter N Quentin Woolf has just published his first novel, The Death Of The Poet, for more information about the book see here.
