The Samuel Pepys of the internet
Internet legend Frank Edward Nora joins us for tonight’s show; for nearly a decade, Frank has been the C21st Samuel Pepys of the ‘net.

It’s a legacy, he believes, for future historians. “This is the most interesting time in history ever”, he says.

Presented by Peter Cox with Dave Bartram and the refulgent Ali Gardiner in the chat room.
