On the day of the terrible events in Manchester, Phil's and our thoughts and sympathies went out to those caught up in the MEN Arena bomb attack, and their families and friends.
In the wake of the tragedy in Manchester there were many instances of spontaneous kindness and human solidarity. Fittingly, the topic of Phil's interview - fostering and adoption - reminds us that the world is full of kind, caring and open-hearted people. Our guest, by telephone, was Kirsty McIntyre, Head of Engagement at Home for Good (www.homeforgood.org.uk), a fostering and adoption agency.
In an interesting twist, Phil - who is himself is a foster parent - became the interviewee for a time, talking about his experiences in fostering.
