Travels with My Father: Michael and Porky

During Travels with My Father series 3, Jack took his father, Michael, to California where they toured LA and Compton. It was in Compton that Jack and Michael met Porky.

Michael said on the Netflix series: “I absolutely loved Porky. And he kept calling me an ‘OG’ which I thought was slightly rude because I thought it was like an ‘OAP’… I thought you don’t have to keep referring to me as an ‘OG’ but, of course, that’s not what it meant.
