Made the Same Way
What happens when a biologist comes face to face with a female MC? Some probing questions, brutal honesty, and lots of rapping about fertilisation. Made the Same Way is a brand new experimental podcast bringing together emerging artists and researchers to discuss science, life, and music.
Each episode challenges a new pair to collaborate on an original creative piece inspired by their conversation. You eavesdrop into the process and hear the final result. A collaborative project between Manchester production company Reform Radio and the Wellcome-funded Human Developmental Biology Initiative.
Cambridge Geopolitics Conversation
The Centre of Geopolitics hosts conversations with people across academia, government, civil society, politics and business to discuss major geopolitical issues, past, present and future.
Each of our podcast series, hosted by a member of the Centre, will focus on a wider theme in a number of different historical and geographical contexts. We hope to provide original interpretations and responses to the changing world around us.
Thoughtlines is a brand-new podcast series from CRASSH – the place where people gather to ask the big questions on who we are and why we live the way we do.
In Thoughtlines we join that conversation and connect the dots in twelve different research journeys, from decoding the politics of your digital assistant to how consumer power helped end the slave trade.
Wide-ranging, accessible, surprising and also deeply personal, Thoughtlines brings you the best of academic thinking outside the box.
