Apples & Cares: Mrs Pepys’ Diary

While the ‘original 17th-century London blogger’ Samuel Pepys has been hurled by the London Podcast into the 21st century, his loyal wife Elisabeth has stayed in 1669.

Here she shares the pleasures of scrumping for apples with a childhood friend, along with coming to terms with being childless. Could there be a solution..?

MAY CONTAIN NUTS!

Mrs Pepys’ Diary: Great Fire, Cake…& ‘Rexit’

With 17th-century blogger Samuel Pepys adrift in the 21st century in the London Podcast, time to hear again from his wife, Elisabeth Pepys, who’s left behind. It turns out she’s a punster of her parish!

2016 is the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, and Lizzie recalls how she watched it with her husband. She also remembers the death of the first Charles Rex (aka King Charles I).

Finally, Ms Pepys points you to a recipe or two and shows she has a social conscience.

The show is linked by producer Adrian Lacey from the Monument, the tall column which was put up in the City of London to commemorate the fire from 1671.
