If the performance of podcasts has you intrigued, then you might be excited to find out there are plenty of opportunities to see one being recorded live. A live podcast recording is a fascinating experience – seeing two or three people crowded around a microphone. And it’s much more than a passing fad, with some podcasters selling out concert halls around the world.
Two great places to catch live podcast recordings near Camden come from Kings Place and a bookstore in Holborn. Since 2016, Kings Place (90 York Way, London, N1 9AG), has been hosting the London Podcast Festival every September. If you’re too eager to wait until next year, then check out London Review Bookshop (14 Bury Place, London, WC1A 2JL). They regularly host guest speakers to talk on anything and everything in the context of reading. Previous guests have included Sally Rooney, Deborah Levy, Ali Smith, Reni Eddo-Lodge, George Monbiot and Mary Beard.
