She Wants a Dog is a new podcast production company that launched in 2020 and is run by producers Pippa Frith and Kate Chapman. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Pippa for a few years now, mostly as sound designer for theatre projects she has produced but also on Francesca Millican-Slater’s podcast series Stories To Tell In The Middle Of The Night.
I am currently working with She Wants A Dog as sound designer for two of their new podcast series – The Pervert’s Podcast, in association with Milk Presents, and A Practical Guide To Death. Both podcasts were scheduled for release this year but the Covid pandemic has meant that the recording and production is sadly all on hold for now. However, we have managed to put together a couple of trailers for the series that will be available soon and will give you a taste of what’s to come.
The Pervert’s Podcast is a kind of queer cabaret with discussion and performance inspired by queer ephemera from archives at the Bishopsgate Institute, London. A Practical Guide To Death features specially commissioned drama on the theme of death accompanied by discussions between the writers and relevant industry professionals on the themes raised in their work.
