Lee Bennett (Riot at the Dojo)

Episode 2,  Aug 16, 2021, 07:00 AM

Frontman for the activist rock group Riot at the Dojo, social worker, non-violent crisis de-escalator - Lee Bennett is a lot of things, and shy is not one of them. On this episode Lee shares his beginnings in the hip-hop community, stories from his day-to-day on the front lines of low-barrier housing, and how you cope with violent situations when the police have stopped responding to mental health calls. I've known Lee through social media for a while now but this was our first proper chance to talk and it was one hell of a conversation.
