Our theme for this episode is "pinning it down", the importance of labelling, classification and definitions in the fields of cities research, mapping and technology, with a literary sidestep into the eighteenth century for good measure.

Our guests are Giles Rhys Jones, CMO of the innovative new mapping website what3words.com, Sophie Coulombeau, a specialist in eighteenth century literature who tells us about why botanical classification was once considered dangerously sexual, and Elsa Arcaute, a physicist here at CASA, who has been working on the surprising difficult task of how you actually define a city.
