The Hand has been made by Gemma Brockis, an artist based in London, and co-founder of Shunt, and Tilli Tansey, Professor of the History of Modern Medical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. Watch this film interview of Gemma and Tilli talking about their podcast, and the process of collaboration.
The podcast includes extracts from Charles Bells' 1833 book, "The hand, its mechanism and vital endowments as evincing design", and should be listened to with headphones. Body Pods is co-produced by Fuel and Roundhouse, who brought you the Everyday Moments series of podcasts, available as the Guardian Culture Podcast last year, and the UCL Ear Institute.
