Insane In The Men Brain

Spoken Word artist Dan Whitlam

Season 8, Ep. 77

Having found enormous success with his videos on TikTok narrating the lives of a 20-something-year-old through spoken word and rap, Dan Whitlam has quickly become a one-to-watch with his soulful voice and poignant lyrics.


His ability to capture raw emotions and convey them through music has caught the attention of Fred Again… and Arlo Parks, as well as fashion brand Hermes, who made him their resident poet. What’s more, with a recent viral video capturing his commitment to empowering and supporting women this International Women's Day, Dan’s poetry has continued to strike a chord with listeners in London and beyond.
