How I Got Here sees actors, writers and entrepreneurs Joivan Wade and Percelle Ascott interview inspiring young people about how they got started. Percelle and Joivan are impressive enough by themselves – going from internet series Mandem on the Wall, to appearances in Youngers on E4; starting their own comedy sharing site The Wall of Comedy; and now landing major roles in Netflix series The Innocents and Hollywood blockbuster The First Purge.
Previous guests have included writer and actor Kayode Ewumi, comedian Mo Gilligan, music mogul Dumi Oburota, Buzzfeed writer Tolani Shoneye, podcaster and writer Emma Gannon, Nike’s first Hijab model Shazia Hossen, Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens and internet sensation Grace Victory.
Come and join us at the podcast festival and hear inspiring stories about getting started on the path to where you want to be.
