Hi ya’ll! Hi everybody! Trey Hall hosts Tim Senna, Chantelle Lunt and Ivor Baddiel for the second episode of Hope & Anchor, a brand new podcast about inclusive conversations that change things.

This week we explore the power of performance, after all, every one of us puts on a show from time to time. We talk about the lessons Strictly teaches us about inclusion and diversity, and Chantelle shares her experience of racism. Ivor and Chantelle talk openly about impact of Kanye West’s comments about race, and the relationship between different minority groups who experience exclusions.

We also head over to Bradford to hear from Luke Tatty Hoggarth about being a Punk Poet and hear his poem ‘A Love Letter to Bradford’. To wind up the episode we have a frank chat about cheating, and if it’s ever OK.

Our Hope and Anchor guests in this episode are:

Tim Senna is a freelance radio presenter, youtube influencer, twitch streamer and lover of the unsigned music scene in Birmingham. He is reforming himself as the Zane Lowe of Twitch BBC Radio Freelance.

Chantelle Lunt is a writer, public speaker, educator, entrepreneur, and activist. She has a professional background in Public Services, including her work in policing and children’s social care. Chantelle is an advocate of racial equality, having experienced racism throughout her life, particularly during her service as a Police Officer. She is the founder of Merseyside BLM Alliance (one of the most proactive anti-racist groups in Merseyside) and the Chair of Merseyside Alliance for Racial Equality CIC (MARE). MARE is a non-profit organisation committed to promoting racial equality, across Merseyside, through grassroots community-led work. In her role as a Freelance Educator, Chantelle works for local and national organisations, such as the Black Curriculum, to decolonise the curriculum, promote racial literacy and empower young people by engaging them in the study of Black History.

Ivor Baddiel skyrocketed to internet fame in 2020 with a comedy video that went viral, in a good non-pandemic way, garnering over ten million views. After his brush with superstardom, Ivor returned to Earth, a little wiser, but no better off financially. He then resumed a writing career which has seen him pen gags, puns, double entendres and even the odd single entendre, for the likes of Stephen Fry, Dermot O’Leary, Claudia Winkleman and David Walliams to name a few. Ivor is also the author of nineteen books for children, adults and adult children. He’s also written a comedy drama for Radio 4, a sitcom for Audible and a documentary film script, but Ivor is worried about repetitive strain injury, so has flatly refused to go on.
