It was one of the most chaotic and controversial album rollouts in recent history but Kanye West's 10th studio album, Donda, is finally here. It's safe to say Kanye is now far from the peak of his nearly two-decade career – artistically and culturally – yet his latest album still went to No. 1.But when we're talking about Kanye, it's never really about the sales figures, or even just the music. There's not that many artists who are as loved, and hated, as Kanye. This week on The Culture, we've got a special jumbo episode (not quite as long as Donda, but still) with two of the podcast's favourites. Filmmaker and contributor to The Saturday Paper, Santilla Chingaipe, talks to us about who Kanye is: where he comes from, why so many people fell in love with his music, and why it's so hard to be a fan right now. And music critic for The Saturday Paper, Shaad D'Souza, takes us through a more in-depth discussion about Donda, and where Kanye sits musically today.Guests: Journalist and writer, Santilla Chingaipe and music critic for The Saturday Paper, Shaad D'Souza.

Nkechi Anele and Lucille Cutting are friends who connected through difference. As two Nigerian-Australian women of a similar age and background, Nkechi and Lucie had vastly different upbringings. One grew up in an urban environment surrounded by many cultures and the other in a small town in country Victoria. Questions about race, identity and culture form the basis of their friendship and led to the development of The Pin – an online discussion platform run by biracial Australians for all Australians. Everyone deserves to feel safe to THINK about who they are, MEET amazing people and EXPRESS themselves.

Sri Lankan-born, Sydney-based artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran creates rough-edged, vibrant, new-age idols that are at once enticing and disquieting. His figurative sculptures experiment with form and scale and explore the politics of sex, the monument, gender and organised religion. While proceeding from a confident atheist perspective, Ramesh draws upon his Hindu and Christian heritage as reference points, also looking to popular culture including the internet, pornography, fashion and art history. For his latest solo exhibition at The University of Melbourne’s Ian Potter Museum of Art, self-portraits make frequent appearances and the dual presence of male and female organs suggesting gender fluid realms of new possibilities. Listen back to Ramesh and award winning journalist Santilla Chingaipe in conversation as they explore the possibilities of his latest body of work on show at The University of Melbourne’s Ian Potter Museum of Art, 'In the Beginning'.
