    TSHP412: Time to Rebuild Community

    What's Coming This Episode?

    The pandemic has brought us some tremendous lows, but it did also give rise to some fantastic community action. As our worlds shrunk, we were forced to explore our neighbourhoods and reconnect with our neighbours. How can we harness that before life returns to 'normal'?

    TSHP411: Why do we no longer trust our sense of smell?

    TSHP411: Why do we no longer trust our sense of smell?

    Our sense of smell evolved to tell us about the world around us. We could tell if something had gone off, was dangerous or poisonous. It told us about other people and about ourselves. Most of all our sense of smell evolved to keep us safe. So what's gone wrong? We cover our smells with strange potions and wash away oils that our body produces daily.

    TSHP410: Coming Out Of Hibernation

    Lockdown is ending the UK and we're all coming out of our shells. Some are doing it quickly and some are being far more cautious. What should we be thinking about as we emerge back onto our high streets and into the gardens (and homes, eventually) of friends and family?

    TSHP408: Breaking out – What have we learned from Covid-19 & lockdown?

    TSHP408: Breaking out – What have we learned from Covid-19 & lockdown?

    Is it over?! Can we go out? Apparently so... lockdown is gradually coming to an end in the UK. It's been a heck of a year and quite a cold, lonely winter for most of us. As we reintroduce ourselves to our friends, family and colleagues it's time to have a think about what we've learned over the past 12 months. What will stick and what can go?

Wonderful podcast

I am very impressed with this podcast. Some of the British expressions are hard to understand. But otherwise informative and very down to earth. Thank you
