Edition 18: Night

Blurry lights at night

Photo by Shehani Fernando

"Night in London is a brief period of infinite possibility" wrote the journalist and travel writer HV Morton in the 1920s, and nowhere is this truer than in Hackney, which from doors open till dawn chorus becomes an asphalt jungle for revellers, criminals, artists, lovers, all night eateries and taxi drivers.

In the latest and most extensive in a series of themed editions, the Hackney Podcast brings you a night in the life of this 24-hour borough through the words of its inhabitants, as we meet Mare Street's moonlight bookseller, skirt the edges of a Dalston stabbing, rescue a lost and disillusioned party-goer, feast on a Turkish spread at Somine, trail a Homerton rubbish truck, and greet dawn with the street traders of Broadway Market. Along the way we hear readings from HV Morton and commentary from Night Haunts author Sukhdev Sandhu, helping to reveal some of the strange allurement of the dark unknown.

    Several factors can cause excess fuel to end up in the combustion chambers.
    Of the three types of smoke you may see coming from your
    car's tailpipe, this type should cause the least amount of concern. Instead of
    acting as a physical or mental stress reliever it actually increases them.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods
    to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.
