Words matter, words have power.
Smashing Wor(l)ds is a podcast series about vocabularies: how to give up old ones and imagine new ones. A story of words and resistance – through words and sounds.
Four conversations between podcaster Anna Raimondo and four activists, artists, and engaged citizens from here and elsewhere. What are the injustices that motivate them in their daily struggles? How do they use language to help change the world? What is the place of language in their identity and their work? Gia, Jaouad, Aline and Shahin proposed words and expressions to deconstruct, resignify and transgress.
