Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. Today we’re speaking to Sabrina Clarke creator of BRKIN Bread: For The Hungry Mind…
The topics discussed in BRKIN Bread are wide-ranging. From colourism and Idris Elba, to Arsenal or Manchester United, and asking ‘Should Ukrainian refugees be sent to Rwanda?’ the conversations are feeding curiosity. Meanwhile, host Sabrina feeds her guest, making these episodes an insight to a dinner-party with a difference.
Who are you, and what’s your podcast about?
I am the Founder of Lateral Theory, an independent digital media company where difference creates. I created, produce and host BRKIN Bread. BRKIN Bread is an audio-visual podcast for the hungry mind. I invite dinner guests to dine and debate over a three-course African or Caribbean meal expertly curated by a Chef. My guests do not know each other or topics until they are at the BRKIN Bread table. BRKIN Bread is about the art of conversation and demonstrates we can disagree without being disagreeable. All opinions, politically correct or counter-cultural, are welcome at my table.
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
When I discovered podcasting as a medium, I knew it would be the future. I also know that I have a perspective and a voice that is uniquely mine and creates a space for dialogue, debate, and education, for which podcasting provides an avenue. As an outlier, podcasting gives me the opportunity to explore and stretch my creativity while edutaining. As a Founder, I get to create jobs and support local businesses, which is essential to how I operate.
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
At the moment, The Shop UNINTERRUPTED.
Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
For BRKIN Bread, this would be a table. To have a spicy conversation, my table would be Michelle Obama, Trevor Noah, JK Rowling, Andrew Tate, Piers Morgan.
Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?
This is like asking if I have a favourite child. All episodes are a perfect introduction to BRKIN Bread. Tune into any episode, and you will get a flavour.
