    S02 E13 Iso-Diaries: Sage Flowers on Accountability

    S02 E13 Iso-Diaries: Sage Flowers on Accountability

    Harness is back! Welcome to isolation... we are exploring how people are harnessing this unique time of COVID-19 and whether (or not) they are coping.
    This week we continue our discussions around BLM with particular focus on Pride and Trans issues. We have the pleasure of interviewing Romy and Iona from Sage Flowers in South London. Romy and Iona are small business owners who are making a big difference when it comes to matters of inclusion and diversity within the British flower world. The traditional art of floristry in the UK, is typically associated with whiteness and elitism.  Romy and Iona have taken many impressive measures to challenge the status quo and hold themselves and others accountable.
    Please follow their creative work and activism via their instagram page @sage.flowers
    You can also find them through their website www.sageflowers.co.uk where (if you are UK based) you can order their gorgeous arrangements.  
    If you want to get in touch, please email us at projectharness@gmail.com, feel free to send over a voice note with how you are passing the time (a template for this is available on our Instagram if you are stuck).

    S02 E12 Iso-Diaries: A Note on Black Lives Matter

    S02 E12 Iso-Diaries: A Note on Black Lives Matter

    As two white women, we acknowledge our responsibility to keep the conversation about anti-racist activism and white supremacy continuing past its most recent iteration in the wake of George Floyd's death. We unreservedly and wholeheartedly support #blacklivesmatter.
    In this episode we discuss our responses, pledge our support and acknowledge our culpability. None of what we discuss is remotely new or revolutionary. Nonetheless, we wanted to make our position clear. 
    As we mention in this episode, if you are Black or a Person of Colour thinking about starting your own podcast, we are offering free technical support and production advice. If you are Black or a POC and would like space on our platform right now, our virtual doors are open.

    S02 E11 Iso-Diaries: Surviving Anorexia - Leah's Story

    Harness is back! Welcome to isolation... we are exploring how people are harnessing this unique time of COVID-19 and whether (or not) they are coping.

    TW: Eating disorders. Following on from Nadia Craddock’s episode last week, we wanted to share Leah’s story about her fifteen year journey from being hospitalised with anorexia to self love and acceptance. Leah dedicates her Instagram to uplifting messages of body positivity and as an outlet to share her experience. We skip our news and voice note segment to share Leah’s full story and get some advice to help others who may be struggling at this time!

    S02 E09 Iso-Diaries: Deeba Syed on Harassment in Lockdown

    Harness is back! Welcome to isolation... we are exploring how people are harnessing this unique time of COVID-19 and whether (or not) they are coping.

    We were challenged by Sonya Ryan (our favourite person) and the Carly Ryan Foundation to share a ‘Coronapiphany,’ namely an epiphany we have had in lockdown. We skip our news segment to bring you our coronapiphanies but you will still hear from our listeners about how they’ve been coping!

    In this episode we chat to Deeba Syed, an employment lawyer and political activist based in the UK. Deeba works alongside Rights of Women and runs their free advice line for women sexually harassed at work. Her work is incredibly vital and we wanted her perspective on how lockdown has affected victims of domestic abuse and those who have been harassed in the workplace.

    Follow Deeba:
