Season 2

Roman Mars

Roman talks to Aleks about his upbringing, about how a group of people he went to college with turned out to be some of the most talented people working in radio today, and about the surprising punk rock inspiration behind Radiotopia.

Lemn Sissay

Lemn Sissay is a multi-award winning poet, performer, and chancellor at the University of Manchester. Lemn spoke to us about growing up with a foster family that rejected him, spending his teens in children’s homes, then realising at the age of 18 his entire life was a lie. He also spoke about a giant who gave him strength and inspiration throughout.
