About the podcast

London's Peaks is a chance to get beyond the hustle and bustle, the traffic and the tourists, to find out what our capital city means to the influential, celebrated people who live here.

Hosted by us (Rick Pearson and Isaac Williams), the premise of the podcast is simple: each episode, one notable resident of one of the twelve inner-city boroughs will lead us on a walk to the highest point within that borough. Along the way, we'll talk fondest memories, hopes for the future and, crucially, what that area of London means to them.

We hope you enjoy listening, of course, but we also hope you can find out something new about our ever-expanding capital and some of the unique, inspiring people who call it home.
