Podcast Summary (It's way better to listen)
America’s on fire, and so are our social media feeds. The centuries old pandemic of state violence on black bodies in the US, flared up again via the death of George Floyd and the other pandemic, is forcing many of us to rethink how racism operates. Not just in America, but here on British soil and within the multi-cultural-seeming walls of our own industry. Joining me this week is founder of food and recipe project, Fowl Mouth’s Melissa Thompson.
