Episode 7, The Old Chalk Way announced, and Green Space Dark Skies project

15th February 2022

Hi everyone,

We're back! We're still taking a rest between season, but we're excited to share an episode from another podcast that we think you’ll like...

THIIIRD Waves is one of the outputs of THIIIRD magazine. The show explores the intersections of culture and activism, and brings their listeners interviews and discussions with guests who have knowledge and lived experiences on the topic they talk about.

This episode was first released in July 2020, and Hosts Daniela, Rhona and Tryb explore things like how communities are affected by tourism and what a more conscious approach to travelling might look like, with stops at Mount Everest, Venice Island, Cuba and more. Then Daniella speaks to Tom Selwyn who is professorial research associate at the department of anthropology and sociology at the London Middle East Institute.

I found this episode fascinating, and I hope you do too!
