Here is an account of the Nothing Beats A LDNR campaign events from one of our FBB participants:
On the 15th February, FBB went down to take part in a podcast workshop hosted by Chuckie and Poet, two inspiring, down to earth guys who wanted to do something with members of the younger community. We learnt a lot about how they produce their podcast and why they upload it to the platforms they do. During the two day project we brainstormed our own podcasts and voiced our opinions on subjects we felt passionately about contrasting from gentrification to masculinity and mental health in sport.
I enjoyed the project immensely as I got to help create the subject Chuckie and Poet would discuss live on their show. It was also amazing getting to work with people who I look up to and are so similar to people I surround myself with.
At the end of the two days I felt really inspired to go home and create my own podcast as the project made me realise I had a lot to say about things that affect me and having my own podcast would allow me to express those views without worrying about how I would be judged. In the future, I wish to have my own podcast where I am free to talk about anything and maybe even have Chuckie and Poet feature on it.
