Do Something For Nothing,

with Joshua Coombes and Dr. Ebony Escalona

Welcome to this ‘Do Something For Nothing’ podcast takeover for The Conduit.  I am Joshua Coombes – hairdresser to the homeless and an amplifier of kindness. Join me and Conduit community member, Dr Ebony Escalona, as we interview some really interesting people who are doing things outside of the box to benefit their communities and our planet.

Our guest on this episode is Phil Heckles. Just an ordinary dad and estate agent from Worthing. Or not…  Phil Heckles – Aka Hercule Van Wolfwinkle gave us all a laugh over the Covid lockdown with his ‘rubbish’ pet portraits. But behind the hilariously captioned artwork is a powerful conduit in raising awareness and funds for homeless charities Turning Tides and StreetVet. This social media sensation was crowned the 2022 Justgiving Creative Fundraiser of the Year. In this episode, we explore how artistic humour really can do a lot not just something for nothing.
