Earlier this year I chatted with Canadian actress Sadie Fay on being a professional patient and training to be an intimacy coordinator. It is was a revelation to me that such work exists.
In this episode you will also hear me speaking Afrikaans in Pretoria
I end the show with a sound slice from a raucous live burlesque drag show from 2019 at The Milton Art Bank featuring Wang Newton. I look forward to once getting into a tightly packed performance space that is seething with joy .
