Fear of being misunderstood with Karl Lokko
In the first episode of Fear Itself, Cressida’s guest is ex-gang member turned advisor, change-agent, public speaker, inspiring poet & proud father, Karl Lokko.
Karl discusses his fear of being misunderstood. His path through life is incredibly inspiring and interesting - he evaded prison and death in his youth - by the age of 16, he had been shot at and stabbed - and now at 30 he’s focussing his attention on helping turn the tide of knife crime in London.
Cressida was curious about how his fears have changed, from when he was growing up as an aspergic & dyspraxic child, as a teen involved in gang crime, to the poet & activist he is now.
