Mostly Lit 

An award-winning weekly books podcast hosted by myself and Raifa Rafiq and formerly Derek Owusu. It is executive produced by Clarissa Pabi.

The show has dedicated itself to centring Black voices in literature since 2016.

It has achieved three years of sold-out shows, an exclusive Waterstones partnership and was the inaugural Cheltenham Literature Festival Podcast-In-Residence in 2018 among other accolades.

My work is firmly based on deepening human connections through conversation and collaboration.

It is my belief that we can all reach our highest potential by reconnecting with what matters to us.
