    #67 Systemic Racism In The UK with Adam Pugh & Africa Daley-Clarke

    #67 Systemic Racism In The UK with Adam Pugh & Africa Daley-Clarke

    Hey Podulters, this episode was recorded live on the 10th February, however the sound quality wasn't very good so it never got released. In light of recents events I felt it needed to be shared more than ever so my fantastic producer Spike worked really hard to make it listenable! This episode is with Adam Pugh and Africa Daley-Clarke and it is about systemic racism in the UK. I hope you find it insightful and enlightening. I have included some resources below. O xx

My favourite podcast!

Really insightful and interesting podcast, great range of guests and always good questions asked!

A must-listen for anyone and everyone who cares about the important stuff

I have been listening to Adulting ever since it first started. I love Oenone’s presenting style and feel like she asks all the questions to which everyone wants to know to answers. I’ve watched the podcast grow and develop from its early days of discussing broader topics such as friendship, homosexuality and body hair, to now broaching more controversial topics of fatphobia, the nuances of the ‘influencer’ industry and BAME representation. I haven’t heard one episode that I haven’t loved and would encourage everyone to give it a try!

Just FAB

Easily one of the most educational, informative & engaging podcasts out there. It is inclusive & also incredibly enjoyable. I attended the live recording about Sobriety/Alcohol & it was great. Can’t wait to attend another ... once we can! 💜
