Aral Sea Productions X HAVEN Coffee presents Migrant Ground, a limited series podcast that highlights different themes on migration and refugee-hood in the UK.
Immigration detention is not a new phenomenon. However, many people are blissfully unaware of these centres, where thousands of migrants are involuntarily held. In this episode, we discuss what immigration detention is, the purpose of these centres and whether there is a need for such a setup. We also discuss what kinds of support can be provided to the detainees whilst they are kept in detention.

This week we sit down with 23 year old still life painter and artist Lorena Levi explains her relationship with her process, choice of oil paint as her medium, and how her illness, cystic fibrosis informs the subject of her painting, the style and more broadly, her life. She tells Creating Waves about what moving away from London to Edinburgh meant to her and how to find a new form of independence and trust in new and old friends.

As an ex drug dealer, former cocaine addict and current bar manager, Angus knows how easy it is to fall into addiction.
“What my addict brain really wants me to do is sell every possession and item I own, and go and live in a crack den for the rest of my life until I die.”
I talk sobriety with Johnny Kay, who first started his journey to sobriety over 2 years ago. Since then, he has relapsed several times.
We discuss gossipping within the sober community, relapsing and whether or not it is inevitable, and how to control and manage addict behaviour.
