Rob Watson runs projects using radio and podcasting to facilitate community development, and to construct a social economy model based on the belief that people should be empowered to tell their own stories.

In this episode Rob talks to Sophie Hope about researcher positionality, the importance of authentic participation in socially engaged research, and what positive steps we might take to ensure the effective communication of important messages for ensuring meaningful engagement, improving trust in our institutions, and building a better society.

Note: this episode forms a special festival edition and is also published as one of the Corkscrew podcasts.
