Listen again: 6 October 2015

Gayby babyRosie speaks to singer songwriter Amanda Rheaume over the phone from her soundcheck at Birmingham’s Kitchen Garden Café. Her current album Keep a Fire was nominated for Aboriginal Album of the Year at the Canadian Juno Awards and tells stories of her great grandparents travelling on a barge through storms. The UK tour stops off at The Con Club on 8 October.

Australian director Maya Newell and producer Charlotte Mars discuss their film Gayby Baby which screens at the BFI London Film Festival on 10 and 12 October. The documentary paints a portrait of four kids whose parents all happen to be gay.

Manchester-based poet, jazz singer, theatre director and writer Cheryl Martin chats about her Polari First Book Prize long-listed collection Alaska ahead of her performance at Queer’Say at Free Word Centre in Farringdon on 4 November.

Interdisciplinary performance artist Stacy Makishi promotes her latest solo show Vesper Time ahead of a run at Soho Theatre from 8-10 October. This ‘subversive sermon’ promises to reference Moby Dick and use MTV as a hymn book to explore themes of paternal absence, death and forgiveness.

For rights reasons the music is not on the podcast, but here’s what we played on the live show:

1) Amanda Rheaume: from the album Keep a Fire
2) O’Hooley and Tidow: The Hum from the album The Hum
3) Cheryl Martin: Alice 
4) Marcus Reeves: Shine from the EP Three Little Words
5) John Grant: It Doesn’t Matter to Him from the album Pale Green Ghosts
