Sake Dean Mahomed

BBC Radio 4, You're Dead to Me, Sake Dean Mahomed

Here's an interesting BBC podcast on Sake Dean Mahomed, which I missed when broadcast last month:

"Greg Jenner and his guests examine the life of Sake Dean Mahomed who introduced curry, shampooing and therapeutic massage to 19th-century England. He grew up under colonial rule, but Sake Dean Mahomed ended up living in Brighton until the age of 92 and counted members of the Royal Family among his many clients. Greg's guests in this episode are Dr Arunima Datta from Idaho State University and the comedian and podcast host Eshaan Akbar."

It's a good podcast series format too - a mix of comedy and academia (the two can be close!).
