HSS chaplain Tim Maguire on BBC Radio Scotland Sunday Morning show

With a new influx of students starting university, Cathy Macdonald looks at the people they can turn to if they face any problems – the university chaplain. We’ll be asking what their role is, and why the University of Edinburgh has just appointed their first Humanist chaplain, HSS Celebrant, Tim Maguire.

The programme also visits the University of Edinburgh’s chaplaincy centre where students unveil Scotland’s first Before I Die Wall, inspired by American artist Cindy Chang’s project in New Orleans. Listen here (and scroll forward to one hour eight minutes in)
