Introducing 'Insecure: A Security Podcast'


The Centre for Global Security Challenges is delighted to announce the new PGR and ECR led podcast ‘Insecure: A Security Podcast’. The creation of the channel marks an exciting development in the collaborative research culture of the CGSC and POLIS at Leeds, providing a new platform to discuss centre members’ research and critically engage with the implications of their work for both policy and future research agendas. ​

Each episode will engage with one of the CGSC’s core research themes whilst engaging with the range of scholarship taking place within the CGSC and relevant current events. Listeners will be encouraged to engage with upcoming podcast topics by submitting their questions to the hosts on Twitter @InsecurePod. The first episode, to be released on 11th April, explores the theme of environmental security with a focus on COP 26: The future of climate research?

The podcast is hosted by Marine Guéguin (@GueguinMarine), a postgraduate researcher in POLIS, and Dr Harrison Swinhoe (@HarrySwinhoe), with the goal of sharing the CGSC’s innovative research and fostering new academic relationships between students, postgraduate and early career researchers, and more established academics.
