Tom Jackson chats to Seaside Photographed curator Karen Shepherdson & top editor Scott Pack about their postcard picks.

Tom Jackson quickly gained a cult following with his popular twitter feed and book Postcards From The Past, which curates the funniest, weirdest and most moving real messages from the backs of old postcards. Now he digs deeper into the personal stories behind old postcards. Every episode of Podcast from the Past, Tom welcomes to the studio two guests, each armed with old postcards they couldn’t bear to throw away. In funny, human, revealing and often moving conversations, they share the memories, mysteries and stories held by those postcards. These stories are the heart of Podcast from the Past.

In this special edition, guests will be Dr. Karen Shepherdson, Director of the South East Archive of Seaside Photography who was one of the curators of the Seaside Photographed exhibition at the Turner Contemporary, and Scott Pack, top editor.
