Cancel Culture is the hot topic that seems to be in an endless cycle of debate, but that’s not why we’re here. To us, Cancel Culture is often the consequence of your actions, but unfortunately ‘Consequences’ isn’t as catchy.

This new scripted weekly podcast series is your one-stop shop to catch up on the full story of who, what, or where has been cancelled. We’re not here to judge or take ourselves too seriously and while some stories will have complicated themes that will leave us thinking, others will have us laughing out loud. Hosted by Leah Davis

    Kate Forbes

    Kate Forbes

    On the 15th of February 2023, before a hastily assembled press pack, Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, informed Edinburgh - and the world - of her decision to resign after eight years in the post. The personal cost of political theatre had become all too high for the longest-serving first minister in Scotland’s history. Amidst the furore that descended upon the party, one forerunner in particular made waves: the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy, and the Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch, Kate Forbes. Although debates for the SNP leadership have finished - with Humza Yusaf, not Forbes as the victorious candidate - today we’re exploring a debate of a different nature that’s taken place. One that hinges on Forbes’ personal politics….

    Alec Baldwin

    Alec Baldwin

    How difficult is it to be damaged by the consequences of your own actions when you have power and profile to shield yourself from accountability? Case in point: Alec Baldwin. Over the years, the acclaimed actor has been emboriled in scandal after scandal — from tapes being released of Baldwin verbally abusing his daughter, to throwing around bigoted and racist slurs, and most recently, being at the helm of a film responsible for a woman's death. As this episode will delve into, legal and cultural parameters are much easier to evade when you're protected by weath and status...

    In the spring of 2022, two Spanish towns were getting ready to celebrate one of their most famous sons. Hundreds – possibly thousands – of tourists would pack the usually sleepy streets of Javea and Getaria to visit temporary exhibitions displaying the finest haute couture. Intricate womenswear designs from the 40s, 50s and 60s, trimmed with the most luxurious lace, sequins and silk, creating intriguing feminine silhouettes that were considered revolutionary at the time. The occasion? The 50th anniversary of the death of a designer whose work transformed the female form forever. A man so talented that his contemporary, Christian Dior, dubbed him “the master of us all”, while American fashion magazine Women’s Wear Daily proclaimed “The King is Dead” in their announcement of his untimely death.

    James Corden

    Celebrities can go from flavour of the month to persona non grata within minutes thanks to social media and a general shift towards more progressive views on accountability and responsibility. Few famous media and entertainment folk are as entrenched in this Camp of Public Hatred as Mr James Kimberley Corden. A renewed wave of anti-Cordenism hit last year after the actor-comedian-TV host was publically criticised by London-born restauranteur Keith McNally for his humourless treatment of staff at McNally’s New York brasserie Balthazar. Listen for an insight into events that may explain why some people – read ‘most’ – can’t stand the comedian...

    In late 1976, the Institute of Contemporary Art or ICA gallery in London unveiled its recent exhibition ‘Prostitution’, a retrospective group show by established art collective COUM-Transmissions. The collective, no stranger to confrontation, couldn’t have predicted the reaction their work would receive, but upon opening, the show was was immediately met with vitriolic reviews in the press, mentioned in the Houses of Parliament and censorship restrictions were placed on some of the pornographic images. The Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn famously said “These people are the wreckers of civilisation" and rows ensued about public funding for the arts. The fallout was hard.

    Ricky Gervais

    Ricky Gervais

    This is the story of Ricky Gervais, a pioneer of sharp-elbowed comedy who decided to puncture his own legacy of speaking truth to power. In one fail swoop, catalysed by the release of his Netflix stand-up speical, SuperNature, Gervais made a series of jokes which could have been at home on a Republican conspiracy theorist's Twitter and annointed them comedy. In doing so, he exchanged a career's worth of political capital as someone who has ostensibly been a rock soild progressive, just for a chance to say he could be 'cancelled'...

Disappointingly Shallow

I was initially pulled in by the concept of the show, but there’s little-to-no criticality. Realistically, these are quick 20-minute (more like 15 once you factor in all the ads) gossip sessions during which you listen to a partisan diatribe about why someone was cancelled, with virtually no critical analysis of the situation. It’s a shame because the concept has the potential to be a true deep-dive into so-called ‘cancel culture’ but it’s really missed that opportunity. On a more positive note, the narrator has a fantastic voice for podcasts - very easy on the ear.

Interesting

I’m really into this podcast! I’ve learnt so much and its entertaining to listen to! The only down side is that there are soo many adverts repeated so many times throughout.
