Incredible conversations with the Mancunians - born, bred and adopted - that put the heart into Modern Manchester.

We recorded these episodes before the Corona Virus spread in March 2020 and decided to continue to release them during the crisis because the message is clear: the love, the family and the community that come out of these conversations will hopefully provide some strength and conviction that we did build this city - and we will do it again.

Manchester is built on the people that come together day in day out and the purposeful relationships they forge. We Built This City focuses on how these extraordinary Mancunians have built something that impacts lives, the stories and values that have driven them to do it, and how they have built thriving businesses that embody their beliefs.

Celebrate human grit, determination, loyalty, and diversity across culture, arts, politics, sport, music and business.
