Urbis Research Forum Podcast 3: Drinking and the City

21 Jan

EDIT: Links fixed! (Sorry folks).

Here’s the latest Urbis Research Forum podcast. With media coverage of “Booze Britain’s” taste for binge drinking, minimum pricing plans and debates around pub licensing, alcohol continues to be a hot topic of debate. But is this a real or moral panic? The Drinking and the City Session explored the benefits and drawbacks of alcohol use in British culture and society paying particular focus on the city of Manchester.

The panel consisted of Dr. Mark Jayne (Geography, University of Manchester), Sarah Pickstone (City Centre Safe, Greater Manchester Police), Dmitri Brady (Warden, Methodist International House) and Haydn Pope (Manchester Pub and Club Network).
