Geography now is a new podcast series from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). In this series, we’ll be talking to geographers about the work that they’re doing, topics they’re passionate about, and opinions they have about the world around us.
At a time when it is impossible to host speakers at the Society, we are committed to creating content that can be accessed online, and are excited to feature individuals who would have spoken at our events around the UK.
