    Bonus Episode - winegod part 2

    Bonus Episode - winegod part 2

    This is a little bonus episode featuring a short interview I did with Oberon White, a queer, Welsh cabaret performance artist.
    You might have already listened to episode 11 which features a poem / soundscape by Oberon. Its an excerpt from their show winegod. If you haven’t listened to that yet I urge you to.
    In this bonus episode Oberon and I chat in more detail about winegod, a show that explored queer icons and took inspiration from mythology.

    #11 - winegod

    "What is queer time? What is queer space?" Oberon White.

    This episode I offer you something from another artist, a piece called 'Prophylaxis' by Oberon White, a performance artist who is a regular fixture on London's queer underground cabaret scene.

    The excerpt you're about to hear is from Oberon's show winegod, which traced the ancientness of queer identity and grappled with the erasure of queer history.

    #10 - Notes to self

    #10 - Notes to self

    Today’s show is all about the bizarre, embarrassing, inexplicable notes that I’ve found in my phone and in various notebooks.
    I’m not talking about long chunks of prose or deep excerpts from a diary or journal. I’m talking about random words and sentences that are just on their own, in the middle of a blank page. 

    Ideas or phrases I’ve written to myself but that have absolutely no context, like I’m supposed to know exactly what I meant when I wrote it down.
    Do you do this? Please let me know I’m not the only one.
     
    Its short and sweet episode, I hope enjoy.

    #9 – 29 Dreams

    It's a weird one this week, a proper weird one in which I tell you about 29 of my deeply strange dreams.

    Like the time I dreamt that Mel Gibson was trying to play Super Mario with me in a windowless room, or when I dreamt that I gave birth to a baby made of paperclips. Buckle up babes, its wild.
