GBA 316 Kas
14 Nov 2017 @ 03:33 am

In GBA 316 we get better acquainted with Kas. She talks about her journey through performance, from playing the White Witch in primary school, to dancing in Pride and Prejudice, to working with Teatro Vivo to make immersive theatre that engages with locations and communities. When we recorded this conversation last week Kas was 8 months pregnant so we also talk about how that has intersected with performance and life. The conversation was recorded in a rehearsal room at the Rich Mix in Shoreditch.

GBA Replayed - GBA 51 Sonia
8 Nov 2017 @ 09:54 am

It's another episode of GBA Replayed which showcases some of the conversations recorded in the early years of Getting Better Acquainted. ------------ In GBA 51 we get better acquainted with my niece, Sonia. She talks about giving birth to her two children which were very different experiences to each other, her feelings about motherhood, having a strong friendship group, smiling at strangers, experiences of Australia, the desire to work with her hands and lots more. We touch on becoming like our parents, what that means and how it can be embraced. I'm also revealed to be a Buncle, uncover her hatred for Chickens and discuss her influence on me when I was growing up. It’s a really open and wide ranging conversation that was a joy to record.

GBA 315 Andy Goddard
25 Oct 2017 @ 11:19 am

In GBA 315 we get better acquainted with Andy. Since Andy works in very similar areas of audio to me, but has a very different approach to how he works, this is a compare and contrast conversation where we talk about why bassists might have an affinity for radio production, making radio and podcast comedy and drama, working with a foot in independent audio and a foot within the mainstream radio world, what it's like when you're locked in the audio cave and whether we are pond-skaters, water-boatmen or ducks!

GBA 313 Craig
11 Oct 2017 @ 10:02 am

In GBA 313 we get better acquainted with Craig. Dr Craig is an academic working in the field of critical social psychology (which has a big dash of sociology within it) whose work focuses on Masculinities. As you may know I made a show about masculinity so we had a lot to talk about. However we didn't really know much about each other before we sat down, and the conversation is certainly influenced by this. In many ways I had an idea of how the conversation would go before we started recording and so part of this episode is me slowly realising it's a different conversation to the one I imagined. We talk about Craig's areas of research which include looking at the way that dancing and gender intersect, looking at Lad Culture within Universities and analyzing the way that men's magazines talk about penises.

GBA 312 Pandora Blake
4 Oct 2017 @ 10:07 am

In GBA 312 we get better acquainted with Pandora Blake. They talk about how they became an award-winning feminist porn producer and performer, the rise and fall of their website Dreams of Spanking that was dedicated to ethically-produced BDSM erotica that prioritised gender diversity, explicit behind the scenes enthusiastic consent, and equal pay for equal work. With a wide lens they get into some of the issues around sex work law reform, censorship, obscenity law, sexual freedom and ethical/feminist porn. And in close up they talk about emerging from a few years of turmoil, change, transformation and transition, with new possibilities on the horizon and with a new understanding of their gender.

From there the conversation covers problematic faves, navigating the world, calling out and calling in, dealing with individuals and with systems, looking at the intersections around gender, race and power and how everything is COMPLICATED and that's okay!

GBA 309 Sam
13 Sep 2017 @ 10:03 am

In GBA 309, we get better acquainted with Sam. He talks about making an award winning "terrible idea" podcast, his early career as a boy soprano, being an actor/musician, occasionally discarding the idea of weighing up the pros and cons of things (via a thought experiment about icecream), the history and future of comics, the influence of his grandfather on his life and so much more. Sam does lots of things including making the Song By Song podcast which discusses the songs of Tom Waits in chronological order.
