Episode 015 – Part 1
Episode 015 – Part 2
Kim is joined in this final episode with guest co-host, creative content producer, fellow RSS adult and friend Steph Robson. They will discuss series 1 of the podcast and answer the question – did the series achieve the dreams and goals that were set out at the start of the creative process?
They also discuss each of their favourite highlights from the series and explain the reasons for their choices – over a two-part episode, along with the questions:
- Has creating this series between us, along with support from the TARSS group and other foundations, had a lasting impact on us personally.
- Have our goals and dreams for this series been realised?
- What feedback or questions have we received?
- What is the future for the Russell Silver Syndrome podcast?
Finally, they discuss the biggest question of all – will a second series be made? Is it a viable option and their conclusion on whether they have decided to make it or not?
We’d love to receive feedback on the series. If you’ve enjoyed or have any suggestions on how we can improve the podcast or what subjects you would love to see included, fill out the Listener Questionnaire >> here <<.
