New podcast: "Sharing Things"

Episode 5 of Sharing things is out today! This week’s podcast guests are Srishti Chaudhary and Abrisham Ahmadzadeh. Srishti studied creative writing at the University of Edinburgh, and her first novel, Once Upon A Curfew, was released in April 2019. Abrisham is a fourth-year classics student who’s working on the launch of Dangerous Women, a book consisting of 50 pieces all answering the question, “What does it mean to be a ‘dangerous woman’?”

Sharing things is a conversation between two members of the University of Edinburgh 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.
