Beatie Wolfe interviews the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar/Emmy-nominated stage and screen actress, singer, and dancer Lesley Ann Warren about her decades of work across classic, cult, and contemporary culture. Listen to this show that takes you from "Leslie Caron & the puppets" to "Lesley Ann Warren & the muppets" via the theme of determination and a fairytale or two.
Orange Juice for the Ears with “musical weirdo and visionary” (Vice) Beatie Wolfe explores the power of music across Space, Science, Art, Health, Film & Technology by talking to the leading luminaries in each field from Nobel Prize winners to multi-platinum producers and hearing the music that has most impacted them, their “Orange Juice for the Ears”. Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN Women role model for innovation, and held an acclaimed solo exhibition at the V&A Museum.
Named by WIRED as one of “22 people changing the world,” Beatie Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music that bridge the physical and digital, which include: a 3D vinyl for the palm of your hand; a wearable record jacket – cut by Bowie/Hendrix’s tailor out of fabric woven with Wolfe’s music – and most recently the world’s first live 360 AR stream from the quietest room on earth. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia.
