When California Was An Island And Other Stories

Economist Tim Harford is hosting a fun podcast series on BBC Pop-Up Ideas. There are 3 episodes on maps which make great listening:

1) Tim Harford- The Power of Maps

2) Jerry Brotton - Mapping History  He is the author of the book A History Of The World In 12 Maps which is definitely of my reading list.

3) Simon Garfield- Maps And Mistakes.. which tells us the story of how in the late 1600's California became an island on the maps of the day..

Very fun to listen to..
