Hear Me, See Me Podcast with Lou Christou, 12 step barber program founder. 


What a wonderful chat with such a beautiful human being. I met Lou this year when I joined him at Acorn house in Shoreditch where he was cutting the hair of homeless people and people in recovery. Lou was telling me of his plan to help homeless people back into work with barber training which is something we had tried in the past with the Haircuts4Homeless Academy. We decided to collaborate and Lou came up with the amazing 12 step barber program.

We talk about our recovery, the new barber academy and our plans for the future.


Please enjoy.


Thank you to the academy sponsors, Thy Barber, Matakki Scissors, Denman, American Crew and Babyliss.

    Hear Me, See Me Podcast with Michelle Fairley, Game of Thrones / Gangs of London.Michelle was born in July 1965, in Northern Ireland. As a teenager she attended the Ulster Youth Theatre before moving to Belfast , where she was a member of Fringe Benefit, a repertory company where she acted alongside Conleth Hill, with whom she would later appear in television juggernaut 'Game of Thrones'. In 1986 she came to London and established herself as a considerable stage actress in 'Oleanna 'at the Royal Court, 'Dancing at Lughnasa' at the Old Vic, as Lady Macbeth with the West Yorkshire Playhouse and as Emilia, wife of the villainous Iago in the Donmar Warehouse's production of 'Othello', for which she was nominated for an Olivier award and on the strength of which she was offered the part of the fiercely matriarchal Lady Stark in 'Game of Thrones'. Following that character's demise she appeared in several American television series - '24', 'Suits' and 'The Lizzie Borden Chronicles ' - as well as playing the wife of (Southern) Irish Brendan Gleeson in the epic period film 'In the Heart of the Sea'. In 2015 she returned to Britain to appear in the play 'Splendour' in London and the television series 'Rebellion' chronicling the 1916 Easter Rising.We have a wonderful chat about her career and also her recent visit to our Haircuts4Homeless Knightsbridge where she was a really great contributor to the evening. She is fascinating, funny, empathetic, beautiful soul.
