EP4: Living under a stereotypes
In this episode we explore ‘self-fulfilling prophesies ’ – how does it feel to navigate a world where people have already judged you before you have had a chance to show them who you are? We are, in a soft way, exploring stereotyping and prejudging which a lot of people who go down dangerous path say they feel.     In this episode, we talked to a young black woman called Aramide and asked her about her experiences navigating a world where there are already pre-judgements made about her character and how that has effected the way she lives her life.  Enjoy the episode and don’t forget to subscribe and turn on your notifications!

EP3: Re-writing your story
In this episode, we explore the kind of life experiences that can drive someone into looking for belonging in groups. We look at the family dynamics, pain, suffering and how it can lead people down a dangerous path.     With this episode, we are challenging narratives about extremism showing that it starts somewhere and showing that anyone through what’s happening at home can do things they never thought they would do. Share with us your life experiences and how they pushed you into certain groups.
