Launched in 2014 as a way to explore new forms of storytelling, the Imaginary Advice podcast has recorded love monologues in the middle of drum and bass raves, made cut-up poetry out of the Today Programme, and cross-bred Jay-Z’s Black Album with the Tate Modern’s audio guide. Written and presented by Ross Sutherland (BBC2’s Missing Episode; Standby for The Tape Back Up), the podcast has grown into one of the most popular storytelling podcasts in the UK (Best Podcasts for Fiction, The Telegraph; Top Fifty Podcasts, Stylist).
Featuring support from art writer and curator Gemma Brace and spoken word artist Saili Katebe.
Gemma Brace is currently based in the History of Art Department at the University of Bristol. Her writing focuses predominantly on contemporary art practice, often exploring ideas around memory, materiality and a sense of place.
Saili Katebe (often writing under the pen name The Blissful Nomad) has found a home in the Bath and Bristol Poetry scene, recently headlining at Milk Poetry and appearing as the ‘spotlight’ act at Raise the Bars.
