it’s a pun on material…

‘rial Talk is a podcast which explores the personal connections we have with the materials around us. It all started two years ago when our host, Anna Ploszajski, realised that although her three degrees indicate that she’s theoretically a materials expert, she didn’t actually know anything really about materials, like how to turn a pot on the wheel, or forge a steel bar or spin wool into yarn. So, this podcast features conversations with the materials experts who do.

Each episode, Anna interviews someone with a personal link to a material. They could be anything from professional artists, to amateur tinkerers to straight up materials obsessives. The only rule? No scientists allowed.
