Breaking all our own rules on this week's podcast
You’ll notice there are two names on this week’s podcast. We’ve never done that before, not for any particular reason. What also makes this week’s podcast unique is that producer and songwriter Dave Okumu is the only person we’ve ever invited back on the podcast, he was the very first guest on Midnight Chats back in February 2016.
It wasn’t random that we put Rosie and Dave together. They’ve been mates for a number of years and co-wrote Lowe’s forthcoming second album YU (out 10 May). There’s talk of how they first met and how they managed to snag the illusive Jay Electronica to be involved. Plus, outside of the music, Dave makes fresh fatherhood come across like a dream while Rosie’s studies in psychotherapy sound as challenging as they are rewarding.
Support Loud And Quiet from £4 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines
As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.
Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £4 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£7 per month) and the rest of the world (£9 per month).
It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
