    Be Part of the Solution: Sharon Thompson Interview on Homelessness

    I met with Labour Councillor Sharon Thompson to talk about what Birmingham is doing to help homeless citizens in the West Midlands. Sharon has played a key role in setting up Birmingham's prevention strategy and has been the first Homelessness Ambassador for Birmingham and the West Midlands. We talked about what is happening in the region and nationally as well as laying the blame for the exponential growth of homelessness firmly at the Tories door.This episode is kindly supported by a-n, artists newsletter and the sound is composed by Zach Dawson.

    I don't look back: Mental Health (With my Mum)

    I don't look back: Mental Health (With my Mum)

    This first episode is a statement of intent, having interviewed my mother about her journey with mental health from childhood to now. We talk about the dwindling support available to her and her re-diagnosis from Depression to Bipolar and now Schizoaffective Disorder. We talk about what that entails with visions and sounds, and how she copes on a daily basis. I am grateful to my mother for being so open and being able to launch the series with her.
