When Jay-Z turns up out of the blue and you're not even sure you've brushed your teeth
Last week saw the return of the Loud And Quiet podcast, Karen O was the first guest in this fresh run of episodes that will now arrive weekly on Thursday’s at midnight.
Of course Kate’s incredibly articulate and insightful, she’s also got great stories. She shared a bunch of them during our hour together: like the local pub banner in Catford that brought her to tears, Rick Rubin’s hands-off approach to production (he was at the helm for The Book Of Traps Of Lessons), meeting Jay-Z at Shangri-La studio, predicting Stormzy’s greatness at Glastonbury and, Paradise, the reimagining of Sophocles’ play Philoctetes that she’s bringing to the The National Theatre in June 2020.
Here it is, or listen via your favoured podcast app.
