David Jesudason (Part Two)

*This is part two of David Jesudason's episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part one first or things might be slightly confusing*


Many believe that the UK is the ultimate pub destination due to the sheer variety of pubs that you can visit. Old pubs, flat-roofed pubs, pubs that date back centuries. However, the hidden gem of UK pubs is arguably the desi pub: a place that grew out of attempts to break the racist colour bar of the 1960s which often meant non-white customers were refused service. These pubs, predominantly ran by British-Indian landlords, may not be the most well known, but they are some of the best in the country. This week we're joined by an actual alehouse expert who has visited LOTS of desi pubs; it's author and journalist David Jesudason!


What David doesn't know about pubs isn't worth knowing. He's also one of the go-to experts on desi pubs, having written his own book on the subject (which is available in all good book shops). But would his dream pub be based on desi pub, or would it go down a different route? Join us in the Correct Realm, as we're about to find out.
