The Last Bohemians

Dear Player, here we are with our haut insider culture picks, plus an interview with Matthew Herbert, artist, musician, producer, DJ and founder of Accidental Records ahead of his lecture at the Goethe Institute as part of their 60th anniversary this year. As for our ticket competitions, we're talking about the cheering &Juliet at Shaftesbury Theatre, plus Sunday Paper's Live featuring Shappi Khorsandi, Claudia Hammond and a whole load more for some cosy Sunday downtime, or join Desperate Optimists (aka Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor) at the London Migration Film Festival, and finally, enjoy Tom Waits fave musician Jesca Hoop at EartH. 

Our Guest Editor this week is Kate 'The Hutch' Hutchinson, creator and host of award-winning podcast series The Last Bohemians which has earned cult status profiling maverick and fearless women in the arts and culture. Think Marina Abramović, Maggie Hambling, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Julia Cameron - and more! 

Kate has covered the cutting edge of music and club culture for over 15 years, first as Time Out’s youngest editor heading up the Nightlife pages aged 19, then as the Guardian Guide’s Deputy Editor, and now as a freelance journalist, presenter and podcaster. She's even been a Guest Contributor at Run Riot, interviewing performance artist and Radio 4 broadcaster Scottie back in 2008 (SIC!). 

In 2019, Kate launched the acclaimed podcast-portrait series The Last Bohemians, which won silver at the British Podcast Awards in 2020 and was crowned a ‘best new podcast’ in NME, Financial Times, the Guardian and on Spotify. 

Fast forward to November 2022, here and now, when Kate returns to Run Riot to write a special feature about The Last Bohemians. She tells us about the latest series set in Los Angeles (including an episode with Julia Cameron, author of The Artists Way); defines a bohemian with great aplomb; and candidly shares the trials and tribulations of creating an award winning independent bijou podcast. The Hutch nails it!

Well, dear player, engage how you can, and enjoy yourself! We'll write again soon. Bottoms up! RR x
