Come back, N Quentin Woolf

I echo the other reviewer who says nothing comes close to the genius that was Londonist Out Loud. Such a delight. 192 episodes aren’t enough.

Fascinating for non-Londoners Too

Taking a moment to post an update just to say, it's been 2 years and I still miss this podcast so much! Nothing has come along to replace it.

=================
I have been enjoying this podcast for a couple of years and it has been a real pleasure even though I don’t even live in London (I live in California). Woolf has a knack for finding unusual, off-the-beaten path destinations: the Horniman Museum, a “ragged school” (who knew?), a make-your-own gin bar, the Brunel Museum, etc. He does an excellent job being the listener’s eyes and asking the questions the listener would ask. He also has a knack for finding enthusiastic, engaging guests and does not get in their way when they are answering his questions. My favorite episode ever was with a tour guide through the Jewish East End. I followed along on Google Street View and it was *almost* as good as being there. 5 stars!
