Episode 10: The Staffroom in Two Acts

Broadcast Live 22 June 2020

For this episode Sophie and Jenny share thoughts on the concept of the Global Staffroom gathered from different voices, perspectives and experiences and combined in the form of a fictive script and voiced through different objects of the staffroom: a microwave meal, an armchair, a pamphlet, a pint of milk and a spoon.
