Sharing things starts with an object
Each episode is a conversation between two members of our university community. It could be a student, a member of staff or a graduate, the only thing they have in common at the beginning is Edinburgh. We start with an object. A special, treasured or significant item that we have asked each guest to bring to the conversation. What happens next is sometimes funny, sometimes moving and always unexpected.
Do you miss conversations with strangers? The unexpected connections, the overlaps, the coincidences. Join us in September 2021 for season 5 of the Sharing things podcast and expand your world with new people and new conversations.
Guests Kevin Harman and Aisha Holloway talk about emotion, identity and an unexpected detective agency.
