The conversation podcast series, Living Gratefully, returns for a second season. Mona Siddiqui, Assistant Principal Religion and Society, explores human relationships, how we form them and what they mean to us, against a background of what it means to feel gratitude.

Back with a host of new guests, Living Gratefully examines how gratitude shapes our relationships with others, and how cultural relationships shape public discourse.

In the first episode of the new series, Mona Siddiqui speaks to the multi award-winning Scottish comedian, actor and writer Janey Godley. Raised in the east end of Glasgow, Janey knew early on she was funny and could tell a story. She began her stand up career in 1994 in a male-dominated environment. Here she speaks of growing up in poverty, her comedy and politics and her advice to struggling artists today, to go online and simply get out there.

This season Mona will also be speaking to Richard Holloway, Scottish writer, broadcaster and cleric; Alastair Bruce, journalist, television correspondent and Governor of Edinburgh Castle; and the University’s Professor Linda Bauld, Bruce and John Usher Professor of Public Health.
