Stuck In The Middle Ep 52: Spencer Dodington, The Destruction of History

Shanghai’s history is being torn down every day, and architect Spencer Dodington is a man on a mission to capture memories of a disappearing past.

He shared the stories behind the buildings in downtown Shanghai, and talked about some of the bizarre challenges that happen when building here, like the time a carpenter decided to cut off his own thumb.

He’s just released a new walking tour book called The Where’s Where of Who’s Who of Old Shanghai, check out more details here.

Today’s track is Cosmic Girl by Jamiroquai.

Thanks for listening 🙂
