This week, my guest is the brilliant Nigel Barlow.
Nigel is the editor of About Manchester, a news and feature online magazine for Greater Manchester. He is also the author of Around Manchester: An Historical, Cultural and Social Journey Around Manchester and Salford. Nigel has lived in East Manchester for fourteen years, deciding on a change of career in his forties from accountancy to writing and journalism. Around Manchester is his first book and he is currently working on a second. The book begins just a five minute walk from his house.
I talk to Nigel about Around Manchester, and about some of his fascinating research into Manchester’s history. And, of course, he shares his selections for Apocalypse Books in the second hour of the show.
