Series 3, Episode 11: George the Poet

George Mpanga, better known by his stage name George the Poet, began his career as a rapper, but after feeling constrained by the form, he moved into poetry and now podcasting. His show ‘Have You Heard George’s Podcast’ swept the board at the British Podcast Awards for its unique interrogation of social injustice.

He talks to Krishnan about the epidemic of youth violence within communities like his, and why the government may not be able to change it in his lifetime.
