Sound Tracks is the fortnightly podcast brought to you by External Relations and Student Services teams (Careers Service, Alumni Engagement) that’s jam-packed with sound advice from our graduate world-changers.

In this episode, John Tiffany gives his first ever podcast interview and answers questions submitted from across the UofG community, including staff, students and alumni. He brings to life his magical career journey from biology student at our Hogwarts-like campus, to being asked by J.K. Rowling to direct her first theatre production – "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". As one of our most prestigious alumni working in the creative arts, with two Tony Awards and a double Olivier Award, his advice is incredibly insightful and valuable.

This funny and thought-provoking discussion is packed with John’s advice for aspiring young creatives and how to truly shine at auditions and interviews, the importance of the Arts in education and of course – what it was like to work with J.K. Rowling!‌John Tiffany Sound Tracks podcast
