This week’s show features an interview with Martin Dodge, one of the authors of Manchester: Mapping the City.
Martin is Senior Lecturer in Geography at Manchester University. Much of his current research focuses on Manchester and he has co-curated several high-profile public exhibitions about the city. I caught up with Martin earlier this week to talk about the book, and the story revealed by the maps and plans that are included.
As well as my interview with Martin, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings? (Also, as it’s nearly Halloween, I’m going to sharing some costume suggestions – 1836-style!)
