Ah Emily. Another week, another opportunity to get stuck in with the grime, the dark, and the deaths. This week we are off to...erm...well, everywhere in London actually! It's the Great Smog of 1952, which hung over London and caused all manner of chaos and suffering. So as you can imagine, Emily is LOVING IT. Join us to find out more about this frankly grim few days of 20thC London.
Plus we find out who won the Podcast Pedestal and Emily gets her sweaty hands on the wheel again for another chance to see where we will get to chat about next week.
