New: The Wales Arts Review Podcast

Welcome to the new Wales Arts Review podcast. In this episode, your new hosts – Josie and Rosie – discuss two brilliant articles written for the Wales Arts Review. In the first section, we talk about Shaheen Sutton’s ‘Remembering the Newport Race Riots of 1919’ in relation to the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests. In the second section of the episode, we chat with Natalie Ann Holborow about her article ‘When a Room of One’s Own Alone Won’t Cut It’, written for the When this is Over: Essays for a World Without Masks series. Tune in for conversation around creative communities, the literary genius, and domestic labour.
