    Yayoi Kusama

    Yayoi Kusama

    Do you know about the Queen of Polkadots—Yayoi Kusama 🔴

    Learn about the life and works of the Japanese artist, her mental health and how this influences her work practice. Discussing her history, modern works and tragedy, it's a rollercoaster of emotion and polkadots; what more could you want?

    Two warnings to you: firstly we discuss mental health and suicide and secondly, we had a few audio issues with this episode so please excuse any areas of roughness or strategic editing.

    Drag & Creativity

    Drag & Creativity

    Have you ever thought of Drag as a creative process? ✨

    This week, lead by Katie we discuss the history of Drag and how its creative roots have branched out over the decades to where it's currently at today. Talking about the heavyweights in the scene, such as Paris is Burning and Ru Paul's Drag Race alongside the historical icons.

    Most importantly, we discuss how Vincent's Cumbrian drag act might work, should he get over his fear of make-up.

    Sun Ra

    Sun Ra

    Do you know about Sun Ra, the black jazz musician from the stars ✨

    For the second episode of this season we discuss Sun Ra, his Arkestra and how he pioneered Afrofuturism before the term had even been coined.

    From his taste for perfection to the legacy he's left behind, on both the physical and astral planes, it's a really pleasure to deconstruct the history of a man from Saturn who changes the face of modern jazz.

    British Folklore Aesthetics

    Perhaps you know about British Folklore, but do you about the aesthetics? ✨

    Kicking off Season 2, Katie and Vincent discuss the aesthetics of British Folklore.
    From reciting Wordsworth to the mystery behind Edinburgh's Burryman, it's always going to be a weird walk with us.

    We also discuss how folklore is adapting to its modern surroundings through artists like Ben Edge and Boss Morris.

    Halloween Special – (Season 2 Pilot)

    We're back with a spooky special!
    Ready for Season Two to kick off next week, we've come together and made a special episode to celebrate the spookiest time of the year.


    Discussing the origins of pumpkin carving, Irish tales and haunted painting – get yourself a bowl of assorted sweets, put in those plastic fangs you've owned for years and dive in.

    Note: we had a slight issue with our audio but our audio technician (Nosferatu) has worked his ghoulish magic to make the listening experience the best it can be.
