Alreeeet! Welcome to Speak Up Sunderland!

Join Betty Ball & Stevie B for this weekly podcast, proudly made both in and about Sunderland!

A few weeks back, writer Glenda Young got in touch with us over Twitter.  She's recently signed a three-book deal with Headline Publishing, and is due to release her debut fiction novel "Belle of the Back Streets' in November.

The books are based in Ryhope, where she was born, so Glenda offered to take us on a tour of her village.  How could we not jump at the chance?

Find out about the vicar who promoted physical violence, what happened to Ryhope's long-lost train stations, and what makes Ryhope such an interesting place to set a series of 3 novels.
