FSE launches The Buzz podcast with 'fast fashion' episode

The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) has launched a new podcast focusing on the past, present and future of important topics across FSE. 

Produced by the FSE Communications and Marketing Team, The Buzz: A science and engineering podcast will feature interviews with leading academics, current students, alumni and more. 

It will explore one theme per episode, from fashion to dinosaur excavation, from women in science to graphene. It will look at each topic not only in relation to The University of Manchester, but also the wider context of the city of Manchester.

The Buzz will be released monthly and the first episode focuses on fashion's dark side: fast fashion. It features the Department of Materials' Dr Patsy Perry, Dr Amy Benstead and recent graduate Rachel Cox. It also delves into Manchester's trendsetting past, from the Industrial Revolution and 'Cottonopolis' to the 'Madchester' scene of the late 1980s.

Listen, and find out more, on The Hub.
