We are pleased to launch our City Interaction Lab Podcast!

Brought to you by City Interaction Lab and the Centre for Human-Computer Interaction Design at City, University of London, the City Interaction Lab Podcast will be a series of thought-provoking design-focused audio episodes featuring interviews and opinions hosted by Stuart and Ernesto.

In this inaugural episode of the City Interaction Lab podcast Stuart and Ernesto talk about graphic medicine with Dr Simon Grennan (University of Chester) and Peter Wilkins (Douglas College, Vancouver Canada).

Our guests discuss their work co-designing the comics ‘Parables of Care‘ and ‘I Know How This Ends’ centred on dementia care. These complementary issues shine the light on those living with dementia and their carers.

If you are interested in how comics can be incorporated into your design practice then this is one not to miss!

Apologies for the audio levels, we’ll do better next episode!
