James Wannerton tastes words when he reads or hears them. He noticed, at the age of 4, 49 years ago, that each London Underground station created a distinct taste. I think it’s great that lots of the tastes come from when he was a child. You can read more here.
I’m convinced there is a piece of theatre here, somewhere.
