Learn about the Great Fire of London with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Before the Great Fire, the City of London was filled with crowded, timber-framed buildings with thin, plaster walls. Candles, rush lights, coals, and fireplaces were omnipresent, and the risk of fire was paramount. The Great Fire of London is believed to have been started by the baker Thomas Farrynger shortly after midnight on Sunday, 2 September 1666, in his shop on Pudding Lane, just East of London Bridge. Within a few hours, the fire had spread rapidly, consuming Pudding Lane, Star Inn at Fish Street Hill and also part of Thames Street. For the next four days the fire raged, mercilessly consuming everything in its wake. Londoners were beside themselves trying to extinguish it. Among average Londoners doing what they could to control the blaze were the likes of the Lord Mayor, the Duke of York, and King Charles II.

Nemesis is the story of an ordinary man who became the king of the largest slum in Rio, the head of a drug cartel, and perhaps Brazil´s most wanted criminal. It´s a gripping tale of gold hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with math degrees. Traversing through rain forests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, this is also the story of how change came to Brazil. Of a country´s journey into the global spotlight and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio, as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs, and poverty. 1.
