Episode 4: LookMann the Poet
In the fourth episode we switch it up a bit, as we invite a rising star of poetry and mental health advocate LookMann (Instagram: @Lookmann.thepoet) on to the show. We explore the conflicts of a brown man entering the creative space whilst stepping in to his past to look at the motivations behind it - from a childhood in the Brexit Capital of Stoke-on-Trent right through to his current experiences with society. We also explore a mental health initiative he has founded and the issues and experiences leading to him taking up this cause.
