S2 E5: Taylor Fuller - Travel Blogger

Taylor Fuller is a travel blogger at Travel Colourfully, and an Instagram influencer, with over 36,000 followers interacting with her colourful photography she captures around the world. Taylor, who’s American, has lived in Paris, Florence, and has recently just settled in London. We talk about life as a travel blogger, how we ended up having mutual friends in Florence (because I lived there for a year too) and how much we love London but the reasons why it’s so hard to make friends here.

S2 E4: Joel Wood and Lia Hatzakis, British culture Youtube creators

Joel and Lia are a comedy duo with a Youtube channel called Being British. In their videos they discuss about cultural differences between the UK and the rest of the world, with over 180,000 subscribers watching at the time of recording. In this episode we talk about getting robbed in Paris, what it’s like trying to explain our careers to people not in the Youtube world, and the differences between New York and London, according to two Brits and one American. Joel and Lia are just as fun in their videos as they are in person so this was a really fun one to record.

S2 E3: Richard Frazier - Head of Retail and Marketing for Workshop Coffee

his week I chatted with Richard Frazier, who’s the Head of Retail and Marketing for Workshop Coffee, which a London-based coffee company . They roast the beans they source from around the world in London’s Bethnal Green and have multiple coffeebar locations around London. If you’re a Love and London fan and you have one of my travel guides, you’ll have seen Workshop pop up as one of my recommend coffee spots. In this episode we talk a lottttt about coffee and how it’s made because to be honest I don’t know tons about it… also we chat about the coffee scene in London and how the city went from having awful coffee, to being pretty darn good at it. We also talk about our love for Richmond Park, Richard is a cyclist and I even tell a story about how I’m ... not.
