Thoughtlines

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.
