British Red Cross podcasts

Connecting communities through the power of personal experience. 

The power of personal experience


Our podcasts give voice to the millions of people we support every year. It’s only through the power of personal experience that we can step into another’s shoes and see the world through their eyes. We hope that our podcasts build empathy and understanding for the people we support, connecting communities and building stronger futures together.

New: the kind place VOICES, episode 5 

In this brand new episode, we ask listeners to become asylum seekers and direct the story for themselves.

You'll explore the everyday struggles people seeking asylum may face in a typical week, from last minute Home Office appointments and restricted financial support, to unsuitable accommodation and hostile neighbours.

With immersive sound design and video game-style narration, the episode is released as 10 different levels. Guided by Carlos and Ngozi — two of the series’ producers – listeners have to make decisions on what to do next, with each leading new challenges.

Their narration is supported by testimony from the We are VOICES production team with each scenario based on real events the team has faced in the UK.
