About the guest
Zaharan Sofi is the founder of ‘Talking Circle London’, an Instagram account designed to keep people informed on social issues that don’t receive enough media attention. Zaharan started this account, on the side of her job in finance, with the idea of creating a safe space for people to both discuss and learn about social issues. It is less than a year old but has already grown to over 44 thousand followers, and had huge impact - both in educating people on key issue, and helping drive signatures for charity campaigns. 
This is a slightly different episode than normal, we do talk about the origin of the idea but we also talk about polarization online, personality politics, cancel culture and why she thinks all celebrities should be change makers. 
P.S. A huge thank you to our sponsor TRIBE!
TRIBE are one of the UK's leading plant-based nutrition brands.
