Listen again: 17 November 2015

Sue PerkinsRosie welcomes internationally best-selling author Yang-May Ooi to the studio ahead of a three-week run of her solo story performance at the Tristan Bates Theatre from 24 November – 12 December. Bound Feet Blues, also available as a book, explores themes of desirability, sexual and gender identity, including her own experience of coming out as a gay East Asian woman living in London.

We also hear from pioneering lesbian feminist performer, writer and director Lois Weaver who presents a Retro(per)spective show with her Split Britches theatre company at Chelsea Theatre’s Sacred Festival on 18 November.

Nathan Evans interviews the Director of Music at the University of Roehampton and at Oxford’s University Church, Gulliver Ralston, ahead of his solo piano recital at an evening celebrating LGBT composers on 20 November at St Pancras Parish Church as part of GFEST.

Culture critic Wendy Baverstock reviews Sue Perkins’ memoir Spectacles, which promises to be packed with stories of adorable pets, eccentric parents, psychopathic nuns and baking judges.

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

1) Ezra Furman: Body Was Made from the album Perpetual Motion People
2) Villagers: Hot Scary Summer from the album Darling Arithmetic
3) John Grant: Down Here from the album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure
