Olga Koch: Fight

2019-10-2100:29:151

In 2014, Olga Koch’s father got stopped by authorities on the Russian border, which resulted in the most surreal year of her family’s life.Olga takes the listener behind the iron curtain, giving us an insight into what it was like to grow up in the newly-formed Russian Federation, how Putin's Russia came about, and why her family now live in exile in Munich.Based on Olga's hit Edinburgh Award-nominated show, Fight is the battle cry for a generation that takes freedom for granted, inspired by a generation that grew up without it.Written and performed by Olga Koch.Co-written by Charlie Dinkin.Recorded by Jerry Peal.Production coordinated by Candace Wilson.Photograph by James Deacon.Produced and edited by Matt Stronge.Olga Koch: Fight is a BBC Studios production.
Award-winning author-comedian Sofie Hagen examines society’s relationship with fat people and, with her infectious wit, sets a funny and impassioned agenda for moving beyond mere body positivity to a better world for everyone - fat or not.Fatphobia is one of the last acceptable prejudices in a world that should really know better. Society continues to send poisonous messages about weight and size, causing widespread misery and mental illness, and dangerously skewing the priorities of millions of young people. Sofie Hagen, the brilliant comedian and author of last year’s hugely successful manifesto Happy Fat, asks what it really means to love your body at any size, and sets out a vision for a world where people aren't defined by their bodies.A personal, fiercely funny examination of a subject everyone else is scared to talk about.An Impatient production for BBC Radio 4

sadly BBC support for brexit has clipped the channel's wings. they have become very partisan, pro the right wing elite. the left wing, ironic and challenging comics they used to feature are now caught in a trap. insult their paymaster or censor their material. or a third choice, walk away. none of these works well for audiences. BBC RIP

Dire. When you have a good comedian like Andrew Maxwell standing on a stage why would you have him not tell jokes but rather introduce expensively piped in dross from around the world instead.

I would agree this is not comedy. however it was thought provoking and, as someone interested in sound production, I thought it was well crafted and fascinating throughout.

More revolted by the spelling of 'its' in the blurb.
