Pride Month Podcast Recommendations

Pride Month Podcast Recommendations

Happy June and Happy Pride Month! It is no secret that we love podcasts here at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives, and we compiled some of our favorite podcasts featuring people who identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community in a tweet thread. Here is our tweet thread of podcast recommendations so you, our Ex Libris Universum readers can enjoy as well!

Note: it may take a few seconds for tweets to load.
