Tanesha & the Troubled City

It’s no secret London’s been suffering an upsurge in knife crime, and suspected murder victims are often younger now. Tanesha Melbourne-Blake was shot and killed in Tottenham on April 2nd, an innocent victim of a possible gang feud. Adrian starts with her fatal shooting to illustrate the wider problem and to put it in context, in this reflective ‘Letter from London’ monologue.

Ultimately, he asks how the capital can move on to a safer future?

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!

Social media addiction guru

Addicted to Facebook? Can’t leave your bed before checking Twitter?  Lost without likes?

This could be the show for you. (Whisper it: you may have a social media addiction.) London-based Irish consultant Seamus O’Healey shares some, er, novel thoughts about how to cope. He also name-drops some celebrity clients.

Adrian takes you to the heart of high-class healthcare in the West End, Harley Street, where Seamus practises, and along the way shares a Beatles story centring on an adjacent street.

Celebrity references may be figments of Seamus’s imagination.
