Ep10 - Plates and Platters with Tim Parker of You'll Soon Know on NTS

This week will feature plates and platters, but with this week’s guest - the platters in question relate to turntables as I’ll be chatting to Tim Parker - Web Developer, Designer, DJ and host of You'll Soon Know, the monthly radio programme on NTS. We discussed food and music memories, travel, design and how we approach and share all of the above. See Tim's photograph's below and you can find him all over Mixcloud, Twitter and Instagram.

Before my chat with Tim I look at the history of plates from our pre-history days as humans and their quick evolution from functional pieces to decorative, artistic and even space exploring items. The work of Judy Chicago, Chloe Wise, Dr Amanda Foreman's The Ascent of Woman, the Voyager Golden records and more are discussed with some of the work discussed below.
