For the fifth episode of We Belong Podcast, we go to the UK to meet Gena-mour Barrett, a journalist and Editorial Creative Manager at Netflix UK, where she curates the Netflix IX interview series. 

As a freelancer, Gena-mour has bylines at Elle, The Guardian, Refinery 29 and BBC Newsbeat. She was listed as one of 2019’s 30 Under 30 for Media and Marketing in Europe by Forbes and was a recipient of the 2018 Roxane Gay fellowship for a woman of colour writing fiction with Jack Jones Literary Arts.

In our conversation with Gena-mour, we dive into her personal story, her childhood in South London and her passion for writing.

We also discuss humour and satire in the media, representation and diversity in the entertainment industry and, of course, her views on Brexit!

Episode available on Apple PodcastSpotifyAnchorYoutube and at the bottom of this post.
