What can we learn from the humanity of others? From seeing ourselves reflected in someone else? Josie Long presents stories of role models. "You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There's this idea that monsters don't have reflections in a mirror. And what I've always thought isn't that monsters don't have reflections in a mirror. It's that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves... Part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it." - Junot Diaz Water Fleas Featuring Akira Sakata Produced by Phil Smith Mirrors Featuring Nikesh Shukla Nadia Produced by Sophie Townsend Intolerants Not Welcome Featuring Mark Thompson Produced by Alan Hall Series Producer: Eleanor McDowall A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 4.
