Ep 109: Your Fifth Sense

In this episode, Richard is joined by Duncan Boak, the Chief Executive of Fifth Sense – a charity dedicated to the support of people experience taste and smell loss.

Duncan explains what led him to establish the charity, his own person experience of sensory impairment and together, he and Richard explore what this means for people in and out of the workplace. We don’t always appreciate our senses, until something happens to how well they work for us. Smell and taste are so important for our safety, relationships, recreation and work – but do they get the attention they deserve?

Thanks for listening!
