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.

To follow Melissa and discover her list of BIPOC people in food, head to her Instagram page. She is growing this list every day, with a particular emphasis on more black representation in food. Special mentions from her go to Original Flava, Caribbean rum and food aficionado, Keshia from Caribe, Rain Forest Creations and Eat of Eden

Hosted by KERB founder Petra Barran, with audio production from KERB stalwart Robin Leeburn of Fairly Media and music ℅ pioneer of the UK grime scene, Tottenham’s very own Meridian Dan
