Hemp backpack with Cel Spellman

Listen on

Episode notes

Learn why actor and broadcaster Cel Spellman can't live without his hemp backpack - and why he wants to grow the hemp revolution! We discover the sometimes confusing history behind hemp: from how it helped the Allies win World War II, via some dodgy back allies of Camden Market, through to the houses being built out of hemp today.
