Philipp is a real expert on ‘Jack the Ripper.’ While reading I thought ‘I need to put this book down’. It’s very dark, but it also gives an insight into the women’s lives and the living conditions in the East End in 1888. Also, it was a pleasure being interviewed by Philipp for his show.

Philipp Röttgers is a writer, journalist and musician and in constant search for London’s spirit. This search for the city’s “spirit of place” has led him on a journey beyond time and place. Along his way he has published a book, several articles and essays, walked the city alone and as a tour guide, founded the company “London beyond time and place” and conversed with authors, musicians, tour guides, historians, curators, entertainers and time travellers who all feel a deep connection to the city and are inspired by it.

This has turned into a successful series of interviews called “Talks beyond time and place”, in which London’s spirit is looked upon from different perspectives which allow you to feel the spirit of London in all its variety. Philipp feels deeply connected to London and the power emanating from this place. Therefore, he is fascinated by meeting people to tell him their personal “London story”.
