One Person V. International Politics As recommended by the QueerSounds collegian Maja, The QS summer of sound welcomes Eunice. She’s the bassist and singer for Vienna based band Curb, a pop punk Trio that she tries to get more and more queer, one song at the time. Together we discuss small easily digestible themes such as international politics.

With the current state of the world being what it is, more often than not we get our day ruined by whatever the twitter roit of the moment might be. Even as Europeans, we often get dragged into whatever is going on in American Politics. This podcast is also guilty as charged of some US-centrism, more than I’d like to admit. Which leaves the question: why should we care? (You can read this question in whichever way you like.)

From Hancock to House he QS Summer of Sound continues. We Kick off July with Jess Jessica: a ridiculously productive house producer from Colorado. She releases new music more often that most and for this episode she brought on a track no one has ever heard before. So stay tuned for this QS-exclusive at the end of the pod!

Her endless curiosity and determination are what sets Jessica apart from other artists. As soon as she got behind a computer, she would try and figure out how producing en music software works. Her time playing Herbie Hancock in school band fun, but Jessica wanted to know more.Playing drums, bass and producing everything herself and releasing tracks basically every other week, Jess is one of the coolest names to watch.

Bisexual Shock Value Content warning: Racism, queerphobia, misogyny, and a brief mention of self-harm.

In this second installment of the QS Summer of Sounds we’re giving you some insight in what it’s like to play festivals that attract more people than the population of your home country. As well as a short introduction to the Faroe Islands, its music scene and general public opinion on queer people. Be warned: it’s not great.

In order to shake things up a little bit, Joe and the Shitboys actively brand themselves as Bisexual. Under a false guise of neutrality people tend to think that conforming to the status quo is the best way to keep the peace. Joe and the Shitboys refuse to take part in this and bring some shock value to the Faroes because ” oh dear, they’re political!”

Publishing the Publicist It’s the Summer of Sound part one! Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between a publisher and a publicist? So have I! And so has today’s guest Liv Dellanno. There was a little bit of confusion about what the difference between the two different music industry positions. Thankfully she is perfectly able to explain the main focus of this episode: what a publicist does.

I’m not gonna lie, I really enjoyed trying to be extra sharp with my questions during this talk. There’s just something about working with other industry professionals that makes me want to try my best. If that means i’m rude or even mean sometimes, I hereby apologise. (I also already said sorry to Liv, don’t worry.)

Sensory Overload and How to Cope Content Warning: Contains mentions of self harm, discussions of mental health and trauma.

Hopefully you’re ready to listen to me deal with my own internal issues. My therapist suggested I’d talk more about my own diagnosis so here we are. My personal sensory overload withs differently from Kris’ but I’m still very grateful he came on the show to talk so openly about his autism.

To be honest, I hoped this conversation would magically melt away all thought and doubts i had about my own diagnosis. Obviously it doesn’t work that way. However, if you’re dealing with some kind of neurodiversity, i hope this episode will help you. Even if it’s just a little bit.

Ex-treme Emotions Diệu Anh, or Zoë to those who don’t want to butcher Vietnamese, talks about her exes so the conversation gets a bit uncomfortable at times. Whether it’s an ex partner, crush or friend, emotions rise high. Thankfully Zoë is very open about everything. She never shies away from getting out of her comfort zone in order to discover some deep rooted feelings, no matter if they’re positive or negative. Never before in the three years this podcast has existed, have I had someone on who talked to openly about the deep dark corners of their heart.

All thoughts and feelings aside, at the end of the day Zoë is just another queer trying to make the world a better place. Through her work at ICS she fights for queer rights in Vietnam. Check out the amazing work they do in the shownotes.

Socialize But Make It Sneaky Ramadan Kareem! This time of year is an important time for Muslims. Ramadan is a period of spending time with loved ones. It’s for sharing the iftar with people who are important to you, and supporting each other in fasting. But what to do if you can’t be yourself around family? Or, in Mehdi’s case, your sexuality is not legal? It’s still possible to socialize as a queer person in Morocco, but you have to be careful.

Quite a chunk of the episode got cut because it would have required a bunch of content warnings in for a short section of the show. In this part we talked about a mass outing that happened in Morocco, initiated by someone who is some kind of internet famous. You can read about it through the link in below.

How Music Heals This episode feels like a throwback of the earlier days of this podcast. Limited audio quality, a bigger focus on the local activists scene and most of all: just me chatting with a friend. Isabel used to live in the same city as me, before moving back to Madrid. Together we’ve always talked about mental health, pop-culture and how music heals.

What’s more this episode: nerding out about Spain in the 70s. Spain’s recent history has been quite different from the rest of Europe. I won’t get into details here, but I’ll leave some links in the shownotes.

The Case For Comedy Over the years stand-up comedy has gotten a bad reputation. More often than not people are exposed to comedians trying to be funny by making fun of queer folks. Enter AJ. He helps stand-up comedians who are just starting out by providing feedback. This includes thinking critically on jokes that could be offensive. This way he hopes to create a space in which comedy can be fun for everyone.

I'm really showing my age this episode. There actually was an entire section of the episode in which we talk about being on camera, something your trusty podcast host is not at all used to, never mind comfortable with. Besides, the questions about TikTok have real old person vibes. For example: asking what someone's favourite TikTok is? That's like asking someone for their favourite Tweet. Dang, we don't know.
