“But you seem so confident!!?” Every performer experiences moments of feeling insecure, or even terrified. Even people who look like the stage is their favourite place on earth. Denice Bourbon packs a bottle of her guest’s favourite drink, and visits them in their homes. They sit down to talk about fears, failures and how to deal with them. And of course, Denice always finds a way to get the conversation back to her! In this podcast the norm is queer, the feminism intersectional and the jokes are punching up.

Play piano/ Ride a Horse! – with Elise Mory
Almost a decade ago, an intimidated and starstruck Denice bought a playback track for a bottle of fine Vodka from the by far coolest piano player in Vienna. Years later they find themselves in the same show (SODOM VIENNA – DIE REVUE) as well as sharing the same love for their favourite aperitivo; Averna with a lot of sour. Meet Elise Mory; the fascinating super talent who makes you question what a coincidence really is. Do we make choices, or are we chosen by circumstances? And how is it really to be part of a left-leaning, and still so very white, alternative/punk scene as a woman of colour? And are all the things we always thought about a proper jazz audience true?
Home is where the Healing is - with Faris Cuchi Gezahegn
We're back, darlings!! After some real struggle with motivation and a desperate search for the angel of inspiration, Denice got a text in mid January from Philipp the Producer that said; "what about Faris as a guest?" to which she yelled out into the world "YES!! They is the one!!!" With a bag full of italian lemon soda and pink prosecco they entered the TürkisRosaLila Villa to meet with the beyond fabulous Faris Cuchi Gezahegn to talk about activism, strategies and the origin of christianity. Denice found new ways on how to deal with imposter syndrome and the best ways to confront hypocritical homo- and transphobia. And as always with Faris; all of this being deep and profound avec sass and glitter!
Queening Out – with Dutzi Ijsenhower
Denice Bourbon yet again packed a bottle of wine and finally left her backyard for a visit to Dutzi, her decade long stage partner at the mother of queer clubs in Vienna 'Gender Crash' which will say good bye forever on October 17 with a covid-secure last night of performances and party. Wanting to try a new approach to the podcast by leaving the same old questions at home, Bourbon ended up learning how little she knows about wine, the 'Velvet Rage' and how the reason for Dutzi ditching dragqueendom is much less dramatic than she thought. Them announcing the song at the end floated away on the stream of bloodred wine; so here it is in writing: “shave” from the most legendary queer band in Vienna: POP:SCH
Keine Extrawürschtl – mit Stefanie Sargnagel
In German! Auf Deutsch!
For the last summertime podcast Denice got 3 different type of drinks, all symbolising a different part of her guest's intriguing personality. Listen to the 'Legends of Entertainment' – colleagues reminisce and rant about crustpunks, the good/bad old days and find out why the artist, author and entertainment genius Stefanie Sargnagel isn't having it with the imposter syndrome-thing.
"Perfume & Death" - with Julia Pühringer
Some people just know how to enjoy life to the fullest, and their ability to put some diamond dust on the tiniest everyday life things should be an inspiration to us all!
When Denice invited the bona fide film journalist Julia over for some Prosecco in her garden,
she had no idea in what direction their conversation would go. It turned out that smelling good and accepting death are truly the best ways to overcome your fears and insecurities!
“Being clever in Denglish” - with Katrina Daschner
Meet the brilliant artist and filmmaker to whom Denice Bourbon owes her career!
If it wouldn't have been for this glorious Diva Fatale, Bourbon would probably never have had the guts to leave her band-comfort zone to discover all the other fun things you can do on stage. Drinking both Red and Rosé on this warm summer night, Katrina and Denice talked about all things scary on stage in their own charming German/English mishmash.
