This Summer, join Jerwood Compton Poetry fellow, poet and playwright Yomi Sode as he hosts the first season of Apples and Snakes: The Podcast.
Through conversations and performances from award-winning poets, rappers and artists such as Caleb Femi, Kat François and Eklipse, Yomi will explore what it means to be Black, British and a poet or spoken word artist.
New episodes will be released each week, starting on Monday 2 August. Each episode – released in two parts – will give a greater insight into the journeys of some of the UK’s most celebrated voices, talking through topics such as:
- The importance of owning and telling our own stories
- Poetry in education
- ‘Sometimes our stories need music’
