    Challengers, Corteiz x Simon Wheatley and the rise of Sabrina Carpenter

    Challengers, Corteiz x Simon Wheatley and the rise of Sabrina Carpenter

    The Face Podcast is your weekly cultural digest – rounding up the stories that you should care about in film, fashion and music.

    This week, we had no choice but to kick off with the film that everyone's obsessed with right now. And so we discuss the pristine fashion, the hard-hitting music and the simmering sexual tension in Luca Guadagnino's red-hot Tennis flick Challengers. Has Zendaya cemented herself as an era-defining actor? Later in the show, Davy and Jade weigh up new tunes by Nilüfer Yanya, Sabrina Carpenter and maybe the first contender for song of the summer, Love Me JeJe by Tems. Last but not least, we explore the backstory behind Corteiz's new jacket featuring a photograph by legendary grime photographer Simon Wheatley.

    Taylor Swift, Baby Reindeer and the Rap Royal Rumble

    Taylor Swift, Baby Reindeer and the Rap Royal Rumble

    This week, we kick off with the show everyone’s talking about right now: Richard Gaad’s Baby Reindeer. The dark Netflix drama is being praised for its nuanced characters, also attracting criticism for causing speculation about the real life people who inspired them.

    We also take on The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology. Taylor’s 31 track odyssey sparks debate about the merits and the cringe-factor of her lyricism, Antonoff vs Dessner and how corporate greed is depriving the 2020s of classic albums. So does Taylor’s chart-domination make her the biggest gangster in music right now? Drake thinks so. For anyone who’s not up-to-date with the whole Drake vs Kendrick, Cole, Rocky, Ross, Future, Metro and Ye situation, we conveniently break that down for your water cooler conversations. 

    Oh, and for the all the Ewan Mitchell fans out there who follow us – we share a little insight into how the House of the Dragon star was on set for his photo shoot with THE FACE.

    5 years of THE FACE

    5 years of THE FACE

    Well, that went quick, didn’t it? THE FACE relaunched digitally in April 2019, which makes us five years old this month. To celebrate, we revisit some of our favourite stories from the last half decade, reminiscing about the highs, lows and Tyler the Creator’s missing wig (which almost scuppered our first cover shoot). We’re proud to be here and grateful to our listeners for their continuing support. If you have a message you want to share with us, maybe even an album, film or artist you’d like us to review, drop us an email on podcast@theface.com and we’ll get back to you on the programme.

    Alessandro Michele takes Valentino, Camila Cabello turns cool and film stars raise money for Gaza

    Alessandro Michele takes Valentino, Camila Cabello turns cool and film stars raise money for Gaza

    This week, we chat Alessandro Michele’s colourful history at Gucci and how he might invigorate Valentino with his maximalist vision. We also assess Camila Cabello’s polarising Playboi Carti collab I Luv It, Beyoncé’s Americana odyssey and London buzz band Mary in the Junkyard’s unusual antics (they recently held a funeral for a yeti!?).

    For the film segment, we discuss the Kristen Stewart-starring romantic thriller Love Lies Bleeding, the Emma Stone-produced A24 horror I Saw The TV Glow and the star-studded Cinema4Gaza fundraiser. The journalist Tom Faber calls in to talk about his article on how the Israel-Gaza conflict has affected Berlin’s creative communities.

    Kinds of Kindness, Addison Rae’s scream and the power of Drain Gang

    Kinds of Kindness, Addison Rae’s scream and the power of Drain Gang

    The Face Podcast is your weekly cultural digest – rounding up the stories that you should care about in film, fashion and music.

    This week, we tuck into the film trailers and teasers that everyone’s taking about, including Kinds of Kindness – Yorgos Lanthimos’ follow-up to Poor Things – as well as the Sydney Sweeney horror Immaculate, Dune 2 and Luca Guadagnino’s Zendaya-starring Tennis drama Challengers.

    We also comb through our Tracks of the Week, sparking chat about Tyla’s commercially-palatable amapiano-R&B fusion, the lore of Two Shell, the enduring influence of Yung Lean and Drain Gang and the viral moment sparked by the gleefully obnoxious Von Duch remix.

Love this podcast!

Brilliant presenters and great topics. I look forward to every episode! The interviews are good, but the episodes discussing topics about current culture (eg Saltburn, UK rap return) are my favourite as the presenters have really interesting views and analysis of the topics. They don't ramble on for ages either and stick to the point which keeps each episode engaging and interesting. The episodes aren’t super regular, but their quality makes up for it. I’d rather have a really good quality long episode every few weeks than be swarmed with short daily episodes on random waffle like what some magazines/newspapers produce.
Love the podcast and would much recommend.
