Podcast: Sharing things 2

Reading time: < 1 minute
What do a mugoti cooking stick, a troll doll toy and a handmade quilt have in common?

The sharing things banner with illustrations of objects.

Each sparked a fascinating conversation captured in Sharing things, a student-produced podcast from the Alumni Relations team. After a fantastic reception, not to mention being shortlisted for the Guardian University Awards 2020, the team have created a second season.

Recorded before the COVID-19 lockdown, these episodes will be airing each Thursday until 21 May. Listen to Professor Peter Mathieson, our Principal and Vice-Chancellor, treated to a poetry reading in Shetlandic; Professor Melissa Terras, Head of the Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture and Society, explain her fascination with objects that survive the past with stories to tell; and Ellen Blundson, fourth-year history and politics student and Disabled Students’ Officer, celebrate the life of her late grandparents.

In this disconnected time, share in our connection to the University community. You can find out more by visiting the Sharing things website or listen to an episode by searching for “Sharing things” on your favourite podcast platform.
