Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
FU Out Loud
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/

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.
