16 mins | Dec 7, 2020

Staying true to her experimental style. Samira Ahmed speaks to 2019's Booker Prize winner, author Bernardine Evaristo. She speaks to Samira about how she found her voice, from growing up in South-East London and setting up the UK's first black women's theatre group to the moment she won the Booker for her novel Girl, Woman, Other. How I Found My Voice is the podcast that explores how some of the world’s greatest artists and thinkers became such compelling — and unique — communicators. This Intelligence Squared podcast goes behind the celebrity persona to understand their journeys and inspirations — from writing a childhood diary to first performing on stage or finding the courage to speak up about an issue that matters.
