"What better way to portray oral history than through audio? The show is a moving and valuable record of social history."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Dec 5, 2020

"More secrets in The Log Books, the podcast that uses the records of the old London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard to explore the lives of queer people. The stories are harrowing and uplifting; beautiful memorials to those who should have lived longer. They brought me to tears several times."
