    That's Your Lot

    That's Your Lot

    In the words of Nina Bo'nina Brown... well, it's over. It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the end of Bottoming.
    It's been an incredible four years, but as things change and our personal focuses have shifted, we have to take a little step back to review and reset. We use this final episode to reflect on the decision, what it means for us, and how we feel being able to have produced such a fulfilling and special podcast.
    Whether you've been with us from the start, or joined us just last week, we want to say an enormous thank you for going on this journey with us, and want to remind you that you're always doing amazing sweeties.
    You can still follow us @bottomingpod for all of our archive content, and we're sure the odd share or story will crop up.
    All our love,
    Brendan and Matthew
    xx

    Stories with BAYLI

    Stories with BAYLI

    This week, we're chatting to Brooklyn artist and songwriter, BAYLI. We chat about her debut as an independent artist, how she’s navigated the past couple of years as a performer, and why she’s determined to sew a deeper message into every song she writes. There's also chat about being a queer musician and the responsibility that holds, our interactions and place within the various Pride Movements... and SUSHI!
    Before we deep-dive with BAYLI, we catchup about the weeks since our last episode, talking about University, big-city moves and LGBTQI+ music festival, Body Movements.

    Live: Pride 50

    Live: Pride 50

    Friday 1st July marked 50 years since the UK's first Pride march, led by the Gay Liberation Front through London. To mark this, thousands of people took to the streets to retrace the exact same route and to protest the current state of the world for LGBTQ+ people, with the parade being led by some of the original GLF members.
    We marched the route, and recorded some live interviews with people to find out why they'd wanted to take to the streets today, including Philip, who was one of the original marchers 50 years ago (and a member of LGBT+ Choice, The Pink Singers!). It's a special one.
    Be sure to check out some of our other speakers: Lesbians and Gays Support The Migrants, Quamar Leather, Schools Out and LGBT+ Traveller Pride. If you can, donate to the kickstarter for Don't Say Gay, the new film about the impact of Section 28, and buy The King Is Dead, by Benjamin Dean.

    Pleasure Pain with Josef Salvat

    Pleasure Pain with Josef Salvat

    This week we’re chatting to the incredible Josef Salvat - about his approach to making music (including his beautiful albums Modern Anxiety and most recently, Islands), about dealing with the pressures of social media and churning out content, and bringing a difficult few years to a close.
    We also catch up about our medication and how we’ve been feeling recently, after both experiencing similar moods.
