The sound of BLOOD is coming directly to you through your headphones (and speakers). Our seven part podcast and radio series of BLOOD: Life Uncut is now available to listen to and download on Soundcloud, iTunes and Stitcher. In the series we ask whether sickle cell anaemia is a 'black disease'; we examine the recently amended legislation surrounding gay men donating blood; we tackle the taboo which stops us speaking about menstruation; we ponder over the role music played in combatting the spread of Ebola; then, we don our detective hats and investigate the bloody world of forensic science; we look into what the future holds for the blood donation service; and finally we listen to poet, playwright and performer Sabrina Mahfouz read 'Bloodlines', a collection of poetry she wrote especially for the BLOOD season.
