    Life Is Like A Box Of Records

    Welcome to Podcart’s life is like a box of records podcast. My name is Halina Rifai. Occasionally we bring in special guests to talk about the songs that have soundtracked their lives so far. For rights reasons, music might be shorted than the original song.


    This week’s guest is Hannah Currie. Hannah is a music promoter, DJ, documentary filmmaker and mental health advocate. She has been an integral part of the Scottish music scene with her co-run collective MILK which has put on some of Glasgow’s best music nights. She is an award-winning documentary filmmaker having released two extremely important and thought-provoking shorts. It’s her work with MHF Live and Mental Health Foundation that has seen her pull from all aspects of her work in music and film and her passion for helping those struggling is clear. It seems there is nothing that Hannah can’t turn her hand to but it’s her tour de force attitude that places her as one of Scotland’s most notable creative talents.




    Hannah also selects music. Her tracklisting is: 


    Nirvana: About A Girl
    Ben E King: Stand By Me
    Madonna: Ray of Light
    Funeral for a Friend: Juneau
    Coldplay: Don’t Panic (from Garden State soundtrack)
    Talking Heads: This Must Be The Place
    Withered Hand: No Cigarettes

Great Podcast!

I love this podcast! Knowledgeable women presenters, good to listen to and I really like the music they play. Fabulous way to learn about some new music or just save the podcasts and replay often.

New music podcast...done right.

Informative and entertaining, I love new music when it's both played and discussed, and this is just as it should be. Halina and Phoebe are clearly passionate people, and they communicate their passion fantastically. This podcast will have you instantly Googling for people on their playlist.
