Loving this content

Great and engaging topics. Excellent choice of guests as well. For a person who is not signed up to an academic path in sociology, I have to say it’s thought provoking stuff 👏🏼

Love it - highly recommended

I adore the Sociology Show.

I was steered away from Sociology as an A-level subject 25 years ago, but I have spent my adult life working in and loving the social sciences.

The chance to hear directly from academics whose books I’m reading is fantastic. I feel so very lucky to have found this wonderful podcast.

Thank you Matthew. You do a grand job.
