Two Bury St Edmunds colleges have launched a weekly podcast by staff and students.

Talk Topical is produced by West Suffolk College and Abbeygate Sixth Form College and will explore different topics including women in science and technology, diversity in films, fast fashion and going to university later in life.

The broadcast is available on all podcast platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.

Alice Dargan, media manager for West Suffolk College said with the world of digital technology growing rapidly, podcasts would see participants tackle and discuss a number of hot topics.

"We have been working on this for some time and it's fantastic to see it finally launch," she said.
