This is an episode I've been planning to do for a long time. It's about a fellow English teacher and a colleague of mine from Speak up London language school Kieren Hughes and the book Battery Life he co-wrote with his friend Nick White.
Battery Life is a collection of short stories that take place in London. So if you would like to embark upon a kaleidoscopic journey into 21st Century London through the eyes of dozens of unique characters, give this episode a listen.
In the second part of the episode I read out a selected story from the book called the King Commute. I'm definitely not the best audiobook narrator, but I gave it my best :)
Here's where you can buy Kieren and Nick's book: https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Life-Nick-White/dp/1726233146.
