Funny, intimate, political, a bit livid, powerful, powerless and patient.
Sonia and Jo host a series of conversations that happen over 6 minutes. In Neither Here Nor There Jo and Sonia have questions about how it’s all going, big unfathomable questions about the world, small questions about the state of your garden. Complexity takes time, it requires multiple voices, many levels of expertise. They’d like you to join the conversation.
