Nostalgia podcast with Dan and Lavinia Cohn-Sherbok

In the latest episode of the Nostalgia podcast series, Dr Chris Deacy, Reader in Theology and Religious Studies in the Department of Religious Studies, speaks to Dan and Lavinia Cohn-Sherbok, who were based at Kent from 1975-97 before moving to Lampeter where Dan was Professor of Judaism.

In this week’s episode, they talk about being born by artificial insemination; being an unmusical child in a musical family; passing one’s driving test while singing hymns; addressing the negative perceptions that colleagues have of oneself by writing a novel about the experience; and whether nostalgia is good for us or not (here Dan and Lavinia take completely different positions).

The next Nostalgia interview will feature Cecilia Sayad from the School of Arts, followed in January by Olly Double – also from the School of Arts – who is a stand-up comedian as well as Reader in Drama.
