Podcast Interview

I tell my story with Pret A Manger in below audio player interview on a podcast based in California by The Adam Paradox.

.

> My call-in to BBC radio show of Dotun Adebayo early morning on Christmas Day 2019. The subject of the show was »What does “Christmas spirit” mean to you?«. One of the questions was, if more people are alone at Christmas than it used to be, and what people’s experience is with Christmas in general. As I was up, I just called in. I didn’t speak about Pret, as death and grief is already “heavy” as it is on Christmas Day and I don’t think a BBC radio program would be ready to hear about Pret! I kept it “light” I hope.

(My losses happened in a span of 3 years, not 5 years, I just spoke from looking back on 5 years.)

Two articles I wrote for the Scottish Left Review:
1. “Late Night Girl” Story with Pret
2. Pushing Back Against Pret

A guest piece I wrote for a tribute page of the iconic Cockatoo Inn hotel in Los Angeles:

NEW & BREAKING!

October 2021

Pre-press article: Mid October 2021 I was contacted by an anonymous person with a link to Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “black book”. The link went to page 38 where the name of Pret and itsu founder Julian Metcalfe is listed, together with his former wife Melanie. I passed the info on to the press who are reluctant or wanting to be absolutely sure the info is legit.
Why I was sent this info I detail here: Julian Metcalfe in Jeffrey Epstein’s black book.

Press articles I prompted: 

Amy Sharpe from the Sunday Mirror went undercover into Pret after she contacted me and I asked her to see for herself:

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.

I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
