Year One: The Story so Far..!

To celebrate The London Podcast‘s first anniversary, here’s a compilation which takes you from Shakespeare to the tube, and from Marley to Wogan.

Adrian weaves these excerpts together with one or two anecdotes, giving you ‘the story behind the story’.

It’s just a fraction of the different podcasts made during 2016 which are all still available, and there’s plenty more to come. Subscribe at Londonpodcast.net to avoid disappointment! 😉

Thanks for listening and thanks to all contributors and people behind the scenes providing support and encouragement to help bring the show to 46 countries (and counting) in its first year.

Pepys at the Comedy Store

The original 17th-century blogger Samuel Pepys goes to premier 21st-century London entertainment spot the Comedy Store. From the expressions of the comics in their photos to the temperature of the ale, our redoubtable diarist has a view on everything. And not everything ends well.

Mr Pepys is played by the travelling showman from Waterford in Ireland, Keith Dunphy. The Audio Diary of Samuel Pepys is written and directed by Adrian Lacey. The show is produced by Adrian and introduced by him from London’s swinging West End.

Sound of the Underground

Enjoy a tube journey in audio and hear fascinating facts about the world’s oldest railway network below street level in this show about the London Underground.

Meet a couple of tube obsessives: Ellie uncovers wartime secrets under Clapham Common, while Joseph crunches the numbers from this dark, dank demimonde.

There’s time travel, too, as our reborn 17th-century London blogger tries to make sense of the tube… and Brexit. The audio diary of Samuel Pepys is performed by actor Keith Dunphy.

The show ends with ‘slow podcasting’, a commentary-free journey from the nethers of the Northern line to the wilds of the West End.

The show is dedicated to everyone who’s ever helped make the London Underground happen. The London Podcast salutes you!
