Breaking the Binaries: Taboos

Listen on

Episode notes

This week, The Yarn is confronting taboos. We're bringing you four stories about what happens when doing the right thing means breaking the rules.    


It’s the second episode of Breaking the Binaries, our new series about the intersections that blend, blur, or break society’s binary codes. 


These stories were produced in collaboration with All the Best mentors for the Science Gallery’s new show, an immersive exhibition about breaking binaries which is open now.


Reporting by Sean Ruse, Aania Tandon, Serena Raza, and Sasha Gattermayr.
