DODD in podcast

The Reverend William DODD was vicar of Wing from 1775 until 1777 - when he was hanged for forgery.

Today I was catching up on some podcasts from The National Archives, and the Reverend was mentioned in one of them. You may want to head over to National Archives podcast feed, or into your preferred podcatcher, and download The Real Little Dorrit: Charles Dickens and the debtors' prison (28 November 2008). The section involving Dodd and his charitable work in relation to imprisoned debtors starts at 42 minutes 20 seconds into the podcast, and is a couple of minutes long.

Listen to find out more about the Thatched House Society and the Macaroni Parson!
