3.2 - THAT PODCAST with CHRIS MCCAUSLAND... where we rely on the kindness of strangers – PART TWO

THAT PODCAST... where we rely on the kindness of strangers and wonder if, generally, we’re good people (or not so much) – PART TWO


Host Chris McCausland returns to the subject of isolation and relying on the kindness of strangers in the pandemic, and discovers that whilst this felt like new territory for many of us, there is a portion of the population for whom this was not a new normal, but the norm. For many people with disabilities, barriers to socialising and engagement with strangers has been part of their lives for the longest time.


Part 2 of the episode features commissions from Athena Stevens and Tim Crouch, and a conversation with novelist Dina Nayeri.
