A Grenfell Story – Snap Spotlights “Have You Heard George’s Podcast?”

March 11, 2020

A young teacher’s daily struggles provide the backdrop for this harrowing reflection on the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Snap spotlights the amazing, “Have You Heard George’s Podcast?” from BBC Sounds.  #HYHGP

In a move from journalism to drama, George departs with the documentary-style narration of previous episodes to deliver a heart-wrenching story of resilience and neglect in London’s inner city. Enlisting the help of rising star Jade Alleyne, poet Sophia Thakur, as well as his own brothers, Freddie, Michael and Kenny Mpanga, George, introduces a small universe of characters whose witty exchanges offer insight into their respective environments.
