Alan Turing, homelessness over Christmas and the education of women in Afghanistan
In episode 28, we talk about being a codebreaker at Bletchley Park during WWII, homelessness in the UK especially over Christmas and what we can do to help tackle this problem, and the education of girls in Afghanistan as well as internalised misogyny within religion.
Our three figures are Alan Turing, that 1 in 200 people in the UK are homeless and the graduation ceremony of 400 girls in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
