What?
A Feminist’s Guide to the Festivals is a podcast series reviewing Fringe theatre, comedy and spoken word and Book Festival events from a feminist perspective.

How?
I’ll be reviewing under my own steam, paying my own money for tickets, and offering a fresh, feminist perspective on what’s happening in Edinburgh in August.

Why?
The Edinburgh Fringe is vast. I wonder how many people actually read the programme, compared to the number who wait for “hot tickets” to be declared based on a clutch of four- and five-star reviews? I’m hoping to highlight productions that are worth talking about from a feminist perspective. Maybe they’ll be polished, maybe they’ll be rough and ready. Maybe I’ll love them, maybe I’ll hate them. But I reckon they’ll all be interesting.

I’ll also be dropping into the Edinburgh International Book Festival, then chatting afterwards about what writers have to say about gender-related issues.

Can we be reviewed?
If you’d like to be reviewed, post a comment below with details of your show.

As part of My Year of Speaking Dangerously in 2017, I dipped my toe into the world of podcasting for the first time, reviewing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and Edinburgh International Book Festival.

A Feminist’s Guide to the Festivals 2017 was part of My Year of Speaking Dangerously – in which I attempted to go from zero to hero in terms of speaking in public and on air.
