Welcome to Episode 17 of the Untamed Podcast with guests Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans of the I’m Tired Project.

Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans are the founders of The I’m Tired Project, a project aiming to highlight the lasting impact of everyday microaggressions, assumptions and stereotypes. It was founded just a few short years ago, in 2015, while Paula and Harriet were studying at the University of Nottingham. Both Harriet and Paula now work in communications outside of their work with their project, and are based in Brighton and London, United Kingdom.
