    Ep 102: Perfume Genius

    Ep 102: Perfume Genius

    Mike Hadreas is finding ways to stay sane in 2020 – whether that's asking his Twitter followers to send him photos of demonic Chihuahuas or driving out into the Joshua Tree desert to perform live at sunset and roll in the dust. Greg Cochrane dialled him up at home in L.A. with his dog Wanda to talk about the 10 years since Perfume Genius' debut album Learning, his favourite moments where his music has been used in movies and why the immersive theatre project he worked on in 2019 left him crying at passing cars. That, and some chat about his 2020 album Set My Heart On Fire Immediately.

    Ep 99: Biig Piig

    Jess Smyth, aka Biig Piig, is missing the unplanned nights out that the COVID-era has stolen. She's staying mellow about it though, because that's what she does. The singer joins Greg Cochrane to chat about that, no-alcohol beer, Zoom dates, Billie Eilish, her plans for her debut album and why she's stopped spooking her pals by doing tarot readings.

100th Show

I ended up listening to this podcast only because Jarvis was on it. Unlike Jarvis I’ve been listening to podcasts for a while now, sadly though I’ve missed this one. Happily though I’ve got 99 more to listen to! Take a listen you might like it too.

Great show

This is a great podcast, engaging host and terrific guests

Quiet but great!

Great content. Honest chats. Love it. It's just a little bit low volume. Could be on purpose because of the name of the podcast, but its much quieter thnan other podcasts.
