Episode Info

It’s our first episode of the year, and we’ve got a great show lined up for you. We talk about the North / South divide in the charity sector. Oxfam gets some stick because of an expensive jacket, and facial recognition is still the absolute worst.

Host Rebecca Rae-Evans is joined by TFGL team members Greg Ashton, Sacha Wynne and producer Paul Jakubowski.

Our special guest this week is Sarah Miguel, Head of Business Development at People’s History Museum.

Sarah leads on marketing, digital, and income generation at the PHM, building relationships with partners and funders to drive change, raise the profile of the museum and build the organisations resilience and sustainability. She leads a fantastic and passionate team, whose work helps the museum tell the stories of ‘ideas worth fighting for’.
