Engaging and captivating

I love this podcast. It tells the stories of one of the UK’s most vibrant and interesting cities that gets far too little coverage. I say this as an American living in North Carolina who got hooked after my first episode. Mick and Mark clearly love their (native and adoptive) home city and it shines through in the diverse topics they cover. Check it out!
