S1 Ep 1 Matt Cain on Alan Turing

Matt Cain is a writer, broadcaster, commentator on LGBTQ+ issues and an ambassador for Manchester Pride. He’s the author of The Madonna of Bolton, The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle, Becoming Ted and One Love.


The blue plaque he chose is at 2 Warrington Crescent, Maida Vale, London W9 1ER. It reads: Alan Turing, 1912-1954, Code-breaker and Pioneer of Computer Science was born here. We spoke about Turing's life and career, and why Matt thinks Turing might actually have preferred to be commemorated elsewhere.
