In this edition of the PodMag, the theme is human rights. You may be aware that December 10 is Human Rights Day, which calls upon everyone to stand up for someone’s rights – whether that’s defending the rights of a refugee, a woman, a child, an LGBT person, indigenous peoples, or anyone at risk of discrimination or violence. Karen talks to Meg-John Barker on gender and sexuality and Marie Gillespie on child refugees.
