A live listening party of the ‘Dear / Hello’ podcast – a series of open letters to moments of change. Real stories from real people about real issues – all with the intimacy that comes with letter-writing. This series features a diverse range of voices, all produced with the intention of humanising issues that are often dehumanised in the mainstream media.
