Episode 9: Gena-mour Barrett, Writer and Presenter
Gena-mour Barrett is a writer, TikTok star, and the Creative Editorial Manager at Netflix UK where she presents both the Netflix IX video interview series, and the 10/10 Would Recommend podcast. In this episode I talk to Gena about how she found her comedic voice on TikTok – where she’s known as @SmileGena – and we also have a really candid conversation about how grief and childhood trauma have informed her sense of humour and style of writing, and how satire has been beneficial to her own mental health. Plus, of course, we discuss what’s ultimately at the heart of her work.
