Listen to your heart

This Valentine's Day, we launch the first ever Research Digest podcast, and take a love-themed trawl through the archives.

It's that time of year, and even the most hardened cynic may be feeling the odd tug at their heart strings. And we are hoping that you will fall in love with a brand new offering.

Our Research Digest blog, launched a decade ago, has blossomed over the years into a hugely successful publication offered on a number of platforms. We thought you might like us to extend this into the medium of sound, so we bring you our very first podcast. The theme for our opening episode: love and attraction.

Head over to the blog now to listen. Do get in touch, and leave comments here or on the Digest blog, as feedback. This is our first attempt, on a shoestring budget, so allow us a honeymoon period!
