    Pretty much everything with Ria Lina

    Pretty much everything with Ria Lina

    Race, religion, gender, sexuality, politics, kids, pandemics...all in under an hour? We don't know how we managed it either, but in our final episode of season 3, we covered it all!

    Ria Lina isn't just a hilarious comedian, she was also a virologist, and her intellectual curiosity took us on some of our favourite tangents yet!

    Follow her on Twitter/Insta @rialina_
    We're afraid you'll have to find her on Linkedin yourself...

    Ending Workplace Bullying and Dancing in your Underwear with Meriel Beale

    In the wake of the recent Noel Clarke allegations it's never been more important to tackle workplace bullying and harassment, and Meriel Beale is at the forefront of the push for change.

    This week we chatted to Meriel about her anti-bullying campaign "Unseen On Screen", as well as "Cheer Up Love", which offers comedy professionals a forum to discuss sensitive subjects in a safe environment.

    But this is Diversify, so we also swapped stories of mistaken identity, favourite musicals, and why we should feel free to dance like no-one's watching!!

    Follow Meriel on Twitter at @MerielBeale and check out her projects @UnseenOnScreen_ and @cheeruploveorg too!

    Writing the Secret Diary of a British Muslim with Tez Ilyas

    Writing the Secret Diary of a British Muslim with Tez Ilyas

    Comedian Tez Ilyas has written a book and he's pretty proud of it! Holly and Kate were also pretty proud to have him on the podcast.

    From growing up as a Muslim in 90's Blackburn to finding his drag name with the help of our hosts, this episode is full of "top bantz" and of course, our standard sociological hot takes. 

    Join us for the latest episode of #DiversifyPod where we journey from pre-9/11 England, all the way to the post-Olympics wasteland of 2021. It's not to be missed!
    Tez's book can be found at: https://www.waterstones.com/book/the-secret-diary-of-a-british-muslim-aged-13-3-4/tez-ilyas/9780751582185
