British Army officer and physiotherapist Preet Chandi has made history as the first woman of colour to complete a solo expedition in Antarctica. 'Polar Preet' trekked 700 miles in 40 days, facing temperatures of -50C, poor visibility and fatigue along the way. She used skis, and dragged a 90kg pulk (a sled) for between 10-12 hours a day. Preet catches up with us from the Union Glacier camp in Antarctica. 'Collector culture' - the swapping, collating and posting of nude images of women without their consent - is on the rise. But unlike revenge porn, it is not a crime. Now survivors are demanding a change in the law. To understand why Anita is joined by Professor of Law at Durham University, Clare McGlynn and Zara Ward, senior practitioner at the Revenge Porn Helpline. Cecil Sharp is known as the godfather of English folk music. In a bid to preserve the English folk song at the turn of the twentieth century, when many in the musical world didn't believe England had a musical tradition of its own, he collected and memorialised thousands of traditional English folk songs from rural communities in England. However, less is known about the people he collected these songs from. FOLK is a new play at Hampstead Theatre in London written by Nell Leyshon, the British dramatist and novelist born in Glastonbury, Somerset. She tells us the true story of Louie Hooper and Lucy White, two half-sisters from Somerset who Cecil Sharp collected hundreds of songs from. A UK tech company is pitching to provide security for women out alone at night who fear for their safety. Drone Defence is hoping to secure government funding to deliver AI drones fitted with spotlights and a thermal camera which would be summoned on an app by an individual who are concerned a predator may be near by. Could this be a solution to a recent survey which showed one in five women fear going out at night alone or does it present a serious privacy risk without tackling the underlying issue of violence against women? We talk to Richard Gill the founder of Drone Defence and to Silkie Carlo the Director of Big Brother Watch. Born in Bristol and raised in Lagos, Nikki May is Nigerian-British. At 20, she dropped out of medical school, moved to London, and began a successful career in advertising. Now aged 56, her debut novel Wahala has just been released and is already being made into a six part drama series for the BBC. It is the story of three thirty-something friends living in London - Ronke, Simi and Boo. Their bond is tested and their lives start to unravel when glamorous high flying Isabel explodes into their friendship group.

“BREWS, POURS And SIPS” From AmericaOnCoffee sharing eventful happenings

Playwright and actress Evelina Fernández, a founding member of Los Angeles' Latino Theater Company, was still in college when she was cast in the original Zoot Suit. “I'm not being overly dramatic when I say, ‘It changed my life,'” she said. “It set me on the path of making theatre my life's work.” It also put Los Angeles—and the rest of the country—on notice that an audience in the Latino community and beyond was ready and eager to hear Latino stories. “It was the first time Chicanos were on the main stage at a regional theatre, and it was the first time Latinos attended the theatre in huge numbers,” she recalled. “We didn't realize it at first, but it soon became apparent that we were making history in the American theatre, and that the play's truths about racism and discrimination suffered by Mexican-Americans in the U.S. struck a full emotional and political chord in our community.” This was by design. Center Theatre Group Founding Artistic Director Gordon Davidson had asked Valdez to consider writing a play that would reflect the history of Los Angeles. Valdez was already intrigued by the story of the 1942 Sleepy Lagoon murder case and the zoot suit riots, as well as by a pachuco character. In 1977, Davidson commissioned Zoot Suit for the Taper. “Apparent in the 1940s and obvious by the 1970s, the dynamic, growing multicultural milieu of Los Angeles was the undeniable wave of the future,” said Valdez. “Gordon had the wisdom and prescience to see it coming. Instead of resisting or ignoring change, he generously gave the voices of the new American theatre an opportunity to speak for themselves.” And America, and especially Los Angeles, listened. Close to half a million people saw Zoot Suit in Los Angeles over the course of a year—first in its sold-out run at the Taper and then at the Aquarius Theater in Hollywood before it headed to Broadway. Valdez estimated that approximately half of those in attendance in L.A. were new theatregoers. “I've always believed that theatre is a creator of community and that community is a real creator of theatre,” he said. That's just one reason why he's excited to be bringing Zoot Suit back to the Taper for its first Los Angeles revival in honor of Center Theatre Group's 50TH Anniversary. For as much progress as has been made over the past few decades, the play is “unfortunately as relevant as ever,” he said. Valdez is also eager to introduce Zoot Suit to a new generation of Angelenos—many of whom will be returning with their parents and grandparents, who saw the show the first time around. www.centertheatregroup.org Image: scribd.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/brewspoursandsipsdotcom/support

The Greeks made sense of difficult things by putting people in a theatre and telling stories.” Presented by Dorian Lynskey. Produced by Andrew Harrison.

When I was in my early twenties, I won an award for a scriptwriting competition run by the Fellowship of Australian Writers, and involved in that process was one of my favourite playwrights - David Williamson.  I wrote David a fan letter, and to my great surprise, he replied! That was my first taste of how deeply David respects his audience, and our interview was no different.  As the most produced playwright in Australian Theatre's history, David is extremely productive. Part of this, he says, is just plain old love of the game. Since the very first time he heard actors saying his words out loud, he was completely hooked.  And as a professional playwright, the structure of the theatre industry has contributed to his prolific output: when the production company lists your next play in their program, your fate is sealed, and there's no time to fall prey to writer's block.  David shares his writing process, from the initial idea all the way through to rehearsals with the cast, as well as how he stays positive in the face of criticism, and why his writer wife Kristin's role as his first reader is so valuable to his work.    David's book: Home Truths   ***   Connect with me on the socials: Linkedin Twitter Instagram    If you're looking for more tips to improve the way you work, I write a fortnightly newsletter that contains three cool things I have discovered that help me work better, which range from interesting research findings through to gadgets I am loving.

What started as a way for colleagues to virtually hang out, learn basic cooking skills and how to make simple meals, turned into a full-fledged, weekly cooking series. During the live weekly series, Rebecca teaches viewers and participants the history and facts of food, basic cooking skills, with easy to follow recipes, that everyone cooks together. Each week focuses on bringing new and exciting flavor profiles together and encouraging the common theme that food is for everyone and everyone can cook! Creating this series and having the opportunity to see people who have never cooked before gain a new skill set and passion became one of the most rewarding experiences for Rebecca in 2020, and she is looking forward to continuing on this culinary journey. On this episode, Rebecca shares her one way ticket to 1950s France when Julia Child was in cooking school.

Britain's foremost writer of political drama, James Graham, has written a new play ‘Best of Enemies', about the television debates in the US in 1968 between the right wing thinker William Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal, the left wing writer. When they began yelling at each other ratings soared - and political coverage changed. Graham talks to presenter Tom Sutcliffe about his play and the striking parallels between what happened in 1968 and what's going on today, in politics and on social media. Lamb is a new Icelandic movie about a farming couple, María and Ingvar, who are shocked to learn that one of their pregnant sheep has given birth to a bizarre human/sheep hybrid. The film is directed by Valdimar Jóhannsson, who also co-wrote the screenplay with author, Sjón. Lamb, which stars Noomi Rapace, was selected Iceland's entry for the Best International Feature Film at this year's Oscars. Briony Hanson reviews.
