Our special guest for May is Leon the Pig Farmer [AKA Jack Horner], a Manchester-based Yorkshire beat poet. An ex-serviceman who began writing verse to help him deal with a PTSD diagnosis, he has an assertive take on spoken word with fast firing rhythmic verse and a sharp outlook on both his mental health recovery, social observation and political imbalance. Leon has two collections available, Don’t Believe the Hype and Talking Myself Out of Trouble.
