A late night talk show that begins when midnight strikes.
Special guest/s will hang out live in studio, providing good chat and occasional performances between tunes. There’ll be a different host each week bringing their own experimental flourishes to the table, which includes pre-recorded audio of conversations, spoken word performances, fiction/non-fiction readings, stand-up comedy, and sound collages.
Forget sleep, stay up, listen in and take the Midnight Special.
Your host Tristan Fidler returns with a fantastic episode of late night chat! We first talk to writer Charlotte Guest about her debut book, a collection of poetry entitled Soap, and we discuss literary matters such as the development of a writing style, what unites the pieces in the book in terms of subject matter and theme, and how working in the publishing industry affected her writing. Then we continue with our semi-regular segment of Film Recommendations with Visual Artist Erin Coates who talks at lenth about several of her picks for the sub-genre of 'Difficult To Watch Movies (That You Should Watch)'. We also kick things off with Birthday Messages for #OurHugh, yes, on the date that we recorded we said Happy Birthday to Hugh Jackman and answered our song challenge poll of Oklahoma or The Boy From Oz. What a show! What a special! A midnight special!
