Lola & The Poets podcast is a virtual alchemical workshop exploring personal and collective magical journeys, the ways the mystical & the mundane are intertwined. Psychology, culture, art, alchemy. Solo shows & interviews. Out every odd Thursday. Hosted by Milana Vujkov.
★ In Episode 3 I’m back with the podcast after an unplanned six month interval, in a solo show about the concept of the shadow, both individual and collective, one of three shows I plan on this topic. Here I talk about my overall impressions of the past several months, the shadow realm in the times of a pandemic, ideas of infectious narratives through a personal theoretical prism, and recall two stories from my own shadows that dipped into the collective – a grim therapeutic regression from the mid-90s which seemed to have immersed me in an Atlantean, antediluvian land, and a slightly more lighthearted macabre dream I had a decade ago about a kooky post-apocalyptic transhumanist future.

SHOW NOTES: Film, the Alchemical Medium
Lola & The Poets art material is the vast vault of our planetary heritage of storytelling & healing, the artistic process is one of soul exploration & artistic production is of a personal magical nature, applied in our lives as a tool for being a good human.
I will endeavour to have an episode out every odd Thursday, which means that it will drop when there’s something to say, or a guest to talk to – but the day of the week will always be the same.
