Sharing things

The University of Edinburgh

Sharing things is about people and what makes them tick. It’s about their stories. Each episode is a conversation between two members of our university community. It could be a student, a member of staff or a graduate, the only thing they have in common at the beginning is Edinburgh. Sharing things also starts with an object. A special, treasured or significant item that we have asked each guest to bring to the conversation. The conversations are sometimes funny, sometimes moving and always unexpected. Subscribe now and get to know our community a little bit better.
