Deep Listening with Roger Mitchell
'Nothing about us, without us, is for us'. The guiding principle of the Morecambe Bay Poverty Truth Commission invokes questions of power and relationality.

About the show
We offer a series of conversations to tap into the wildness within ourselves and to uncover what is possible when we do. It is our hope that through the WorldWild Podcast we can contribute to the revitalisation of wild food culture and conversation around the world.
Through people who know their landscapes intimately, we gather the threads to weave a rich tapestry. Piece by piece the vision of a wilder world comes into view. The wild embrace of nature welcomes us back and offers us a seat at the table. A feast, no less!
