Funny, frank chats with fellow #Sickbabes

Created by artist Suriya Aisha, Sickbabe is a podcast series of funny, frank chats with fellow #Sickbabes who exist and resist everyday with invisible physical health conditions.

This brand new podcast series drops on Thursday 28 October as a special release alongside Black Gold Arts Festival. To celebrate this, Suriya and friends will be hosting a relaxed and friendly in-person launch event at Contact. Expect cushions and feel free to be horizontal. This event will be captioned using Otter.ai.

We’ll also be broadcasting the conversations we have at the launch as a live podcast, so you can listen from your own space. Reform Radio will be hosting this broadcast for us, click here to listen from Thursday 28 October, 7pm.

The audio broadcast will be live transcribed here.

If you have other access requirements, for example you’re attending the live event and require BSL, please do let us know when booking a ticket – we want to make the live event and broadcast as accessible as we can.

Sickbabe Podcast is produced by She Wants a Dog, a new podcast producer, and supported by Contact and Arts Council England.
