#8: Fresh, Hot, Cooked Meat with Hannah Goldstein

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the Alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.Sickkkkkk, bruv. This week, host Kelsie Renehan sits down with Hannah Goldstein, former Editor in Chief of the FU Review, events manager at The Word, host of Picks of Berlin, and Masters Candidate at Freie Univeristät. In this long season finale episode, they talk about the process of creating and running a literary journal, supporting the scene instead of being in the scene, and curating events to support artists. Hannah is shocking us in ways that are insightful, exploring perverse women, and hating the sound of her own voice. See if you can guess where she’s from before the end of the episode.Hannah’s reading at loads of nights where it wasn’t really appropriate & putting Sick to rest on the pod. They also talk about the standard taking down capitalism and importance of community. And always remember, it depends on what club you’re in in Berlin.Even though we plug so many great events in this episode, you gotta stay inside right now. So, we’re not doing our episodic biweekly events calendar below. Please, please support your local artists, bars, bookstores, and lit mags, but at a safe distance. We’ll see you out there when it’s safe to do so. Hey, Christian, this is for you.We're so happy to bring you a little literature in a sweet twenty-minute package for the reader on the move, thanks to The FU Review and Bear Radio. And as always, big thanks to Hindenburg for their support. Special love in this episode to the JFKI. Follow the FU Review on Facebook and Instagram!

#7: The Patron Saint of Prometheus with Blake Matich

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the Alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.On a podcast where our gut is so on fire we could digest anything and I can’t pronounce anyone’s last names, Blake Matich is here, making the outtakes way more funny than they need to be & where we provide the ASMR service of sweet nothings and pleasantries (pleasant niceitries?? no self-deprecation here; we’re rolling with it). There’s koalas … having intercourse, truly an animal with a commitment to chaos. And Kelsie has decided that when Australians say ‘duhhhh’ there’s an r in there, somewhere. We talk about the kind of people who google their own houses (me) instead of everything you could possible see on the infinite being of Google Earth that the American Government (capital A capital G) lets you see, and the every present dependency on making people laugh, and climate doom and why we shouldn’t trust it (just the doom, Earth is definitely dying). Does Blake think capitalism will change us?? Did Prometheus cackle as he stole the sun?? Does Blake makes up words that already exist (Trump realness)?? Am I rude off tape?? “I could never disdain wanting to paying attention to something closely.”You can find one of Blake’s recently published pieces here [ http://honisoit.com/2019/12/vale-clive-james-a-lightning-before-death/ ] If you’d like to collab (especially on a play/comedy) with Blake, connect with him on insta @bkmatichCheck out the Berlin Writers Group, talked about in the episode today, and maybe you’ll run into Blake! Say hi for us.

#6: Don’t Open My Closet with Hanna Olters

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.This week, in a podcast where we allow alternative histories, Kelsie sits down with Hanna Olters for some poems about citrus and blackberries and summer, including one from the archives (issue 5 of the FU Review). Apologies for Kelsie’s blown out voice, even though Hanna is the sick one. We talk about our opposite editing processes, why Mother Mary wears blue, my grandmother, Natalia Ginzburg, and motherhood (which neither of us are). Plus our own poems that surprise us later, self-actualization, The Wild Word, and what stayed behind. Bonus discussions about my neighborhood squirrel and the age-old question, who amongst us doesn’t hoard Mother Mary paraphernalia?Hanna is a German American poet and student who insists there is one plus side to mass surveillance: NSA picks of the month (NSA don’t interact!)Remember, our submissions are now open through Feb 15, 2020! We pay our authors, and ya know, sometimes they end up on a podcast like this one ;) https://www.facebook.com/events/561922491255488/ Follow the FU Review on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!We're so happy to bring you a little literature in a sweet twenty-minute package for the reader on the move, thanks to The FU Review and Bear Radio. And as always, big thanks to Hindenburg for their support.Notes: the Toni Morrison quote mentioned is: “There was something so valuable about what happened when one became a mother. For me it was the most liberating thing that ever happened to me. Liberating because the demands that children make are not the demands of a normal ‘other.’ The children’s demands on me were things that nobody ever asked me to do. To be a good manager. To have a sense of humor. To deliver something that somebody could use. And they were not interested in all the things that other people were interested in, like what I was wearing or if I were sensual. Somehow all of the baggage that I had accumulated as a person about what was valuable just fell away. I could not only be me—whatever that was—but somebody actually needed me to be that. If you listen to [your children], somehow you are able to free yourself from baggage and vanity and all sorts of things, and deliver a better self, one that you like. The person that was in me that I liked best was the one my children seemed to want.” :fromToni Morrison and Motherhood: A Politics of the Heart

#5: Building Community in the Dead of Winter with Behram Sidhwa

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.This week, on a podcast where we are NOT knocking ourselves down goddamn it, Kelsie sits down with Behram Sidhwa, a philosopher poet with high praise for pigeons and Künstler, Künstlerin (and Alexandra and Luke). We talk about trying to be a nice human being, trying to battle our way through the Berlin winter, and cooking for love. Why go to therapy when you could go to open mics?? (jk go to therapy) Behram reads two pieces involving inter-species relations and that war president, and we talk about writing communities and how pieces are received depending on the reader and the audience. We’ll be back in two weeks. Until then, we are reading absolutely nothing & doing something for ourselves.Behram is a performer, orator, poet, and essayist from India. Mostly writing intuitively, his process is driven by an emotional overflowing that won’t resolve itself until its expression. He has a penchant for creating a surreal blend of the esoteric and the exact, with an efficiency of words that feels like witnessing a fresco in 5 minutes.Remember, our submissions are now open, due Feb 15, 2020! We pay our authors, and ya know, sometimes they end up on a podcast like this one ;) https://www.facebook.com/events/561922491255488/ Follow the FU Review on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!We're so happy to bring you a little literature in a sweet twenty-minute package for the reader on the move, thanks to The FU Review and Bear Radio. And as always, big thanks to Hindenburg for their support.Our outro song is titled ‘A Caring Friend’, which brings me a bit of joy at the end of editing every time – so if you listen through to the end – it’ll be a treat for you now too.

#4: Lowering People’s Standards with Maximilien Luc Proctor

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the Alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.This week, host Kelsie Renehan sits down with Maximilien Luc Proctor, a filmmaker who you can just call Max, to read some stories about blocks (which can’t defend themselves), stories about movies, stories from unfinished novels about unfinished dreams. They talk about the translation of humor, starting your own blog, how to get interviews with famous artists, and Kelsie tries to become Max’s personal hero. Go to Serbia, throw that spaghetti, and try to figure out if Kelsie is lying. Max was truly a joy to record with, and even with cutting the many laughs, the many re-readings of ‘sum of their farts’, this episode is a few minutes longer than usual – but we promise, it’s worth it.@Wolf Kino – hire my mans Max.

Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the Alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review. This week, on a podcast where there’s no room for modesty, host Kelsie Renehan sits down with Best Poet Ever, Luke Swenson, who would definitely go to Mars.

#1: "Oh, Humans, Definitely" with Gamze Saymaz

Welcome to the first episode of FU Out Loud! We're so happy to bring you a little literature in a sweet twenty-minute package for the reader on the move. We're kicking off our inaugural episode with a very near and dear author to the FU Review. Gamze Saymaz joins host Kelsie to read some cannibalistic and lovesick prose poems and talk about past inspiration, what she's reading now, and how the future of her writing is shaping up. Hint: it involves a house so haunted and so awfully close to the tube, humans making aliens (because there is no limit to human hubris), a knock-off Ikea, and 22 buffalo chicken wings. After the episode, Kelsie talks about a few upcoming literary events in Berlin! If you're a Berliner like us, or just in town, stay tuned. A full list can be found below.
