I regularly listen to "The Conversation", a half-hour radio programme on the BBC World Service that, each week, brings together two women from two cultures to discuss and compare some aspect of their life experience (usually, but not always, their work). I have found many of the conversations interesting and inspiring and thought I'd recommend the programme.
I don't currently listen to them but will download some later to try. I listen to a lot of BBC podcasts such as the World Service documentaries, Great Lives and the Radio 4 film programme, so this sounds right up my street. Thanks for the recommend
