The return of universities Alone Together - A Coronavirus Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

On this episode we take a look at the return to universities for students. What are their concerns about the new academic year? What will lectures look like under social distancing? And what do they feel needs to be done to support them?

Matt Millard speaks with Joshua Williams, a postgraduate student at the University of Birmingham and ex-president of the students union, to get a deeper perspective on the challenges that students are facing.

Dan McLaughlin speaks with Dr Carole O’Reilly, senior lecturer in media and cultural studies at the University of Salford, who has embraced the change and wants to avoid - in her words - ‘death by PowerPoint’.

Dan and Matt also celebrate Journalism Matters Week, an annual campaign that highlights the important role that journalism plays in our society, as they discuss their favourite journalism moments of 2020 so far.

Alone Together is a Laudable production from the newsrooms of Birmingham Live, the Edinburgh Evening News, and the Manchester Evening News.

Written and hosted by Matt Millard, Dan McLaughlin and Morven McIntyre.
Produced and edited by Matt Millard.

This October, to mark Black History Month, Laudable has launched a new short-form audio series, Black Lives: Past, Present, and Future. To find out more about the project and how you can get involved, head to laudable.substack.com
