Sylvia Vetta and Yang-May Ooi - Creative Conversations podcast

When we think of Oxford, we tend to think of the city created by the University, with its dreaming spires and architecture of learning. But there is a whole lot more to explore. Oxford is also the Hollywood of Stories and a melting pot of cultural diversity – says author Sylvia Vetta, talking to writer Yang-May Ooi on the Creative Conversations podcast.
