Conversations are a key part of how we communicate - but how do they actually work & what might go wrong? That's what my guest on this episode, Professor Elizabeth Stokoe, helps me to understand in...a conversation! Liz is the Professor of Social Interaction at Loughborough University in the UK. Her research analyses conversations in a wide range of settings. In our discussion, we explore some of the findings of her studies, how she came to specialise in the subject and her thoughts on COVID. Unsurprisingly, given her discipline, Liz is engaging, insightful and entertaining.
