Inside the Mind of a Violent Gang Member - Crimecon 2022
In my last podcast I spoke about being invited to speak at the second Crimecon 2022 event in London to chair a session that is called Inside the Mind of a Violent Gang Member. In this episode I am joined by Lennox Rogers, a former member of street gangs and an organised crime group and Peaky Blinder's own Carl Chinn. Lennox now runs a gang prevention charity called The Refocus Project Carl Chinn is the great godson of a real Peaky Blinder and he is a historian who looks at gangs. This podcast features unedited audio of our session at Crimecon. Both my guests are authors of books and you can buy them on the following links. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did.
