Podcast Playlist – 03 To The Trees I Take My Tears

Next in our series of playlists emerging from thoughts, ideas and inspirations from Fermynwoods Podcast episodes is To The Trees I Take My Tears – responding to Episode 17 which features an audio essay by Hanna Tuulikki that encourages conversation with the woods whilst reflecting on how ideals of ecology, identity and nationhood are entwined.

This playlist was curated by Astrid Björklund, one half of our podcast guest curators SUBTERRA.
