Further Listening

Here, in no particular order, are some of my favourite podcasts. They range from deeply moving personal stories to the guilty pleasures of mainstream entertainment to science and design. The descriptions were taken from their own websites or social media pages, but some of them don’t quite do the shows justice. Many include aspects of awareness, inclusion, and representation. Please do have a listen!
