    Storytelling
    156

    General content note for the series: death, dementia, old age, mental health issues Additional content note: sexism, misogyny, questionable behavior, power dynamics and age gaps within romantic and sexual situations. When I made a show about my relationship with masculinity, I talked a lot about my mum and my stepdad, but my dad hardly featured at all. When he did, he was a positive presence and represented an alternative version of masculinity. When you’re trying to condense your history into an hour-long show, you have to leave some bits out. But there’s also something inside me that doesn’t want to deconstruct my dad. I don’t want to mess too much with the positive parts of my childhood. This episode is about masculinity, privilege and performance.

    Storytelling

    General content note for the series: death, dementia, old age, mental health issues It’s important to keep in mind that the story of my relationship with my dad is only one part of his life. It’s only one of the ways he has been a father: the context of my childhood has been very different from the context of my siblings’ childhoods. While he was retired for most of my life, for the rest of my siblings, he was someone who went out to work.  This episode is about friendship, parenting, love and care.

    Storytelling
    188

    General content note for the series: death, dementia, old age, mental health issues Memories are like desire paths: when you first walk down them, they are overgrown and full of details. The more you walk them, the more eroded they become; they are smoothed out and set. You get to what you remember more quickly, but what you remember has become something else. You no longer have to look for landmarks because there is a path for you to walk. This episode is about time memory, childhood, dementia and Citizen Kane.

    General content note for the series: death, dementia, old age, mental health issues In the first full episode of the podcast using content funded by the British Podcast Awards and the Wellcome Trust I talk to fellow Pulse Award recipient and podcaster Penny Bell.

    Storytelling
    246

    General content note for the series: death, dementia, old age, mental health issues A document is a piece of evidence; a record; a proof of something. By this definition, we are all living documents, documents that may or may not be lost to history. What parts of us are recorded? What parts of us are seen? We record our lives and the lives of others, using our memory and our technology. We choose what to record, how we record it and how we present it, sometimes consciously and sometimes subconsciously. We don’t always fully choose because we can only work with what we have; sometimes our choices are more restricted than others. We are all documents; we are all documenters; we are all Documentary Makers. Artwork by my brother Tony Pickering: http://www.pick-art.co.uk/

    After a year on hiatus from Getting Better Acquainted I return for a one-off extra episode to continue the tradition of beginning the new year with a round up of how the last year panned out for me, and because it's 2019 I also consider how the decade has gone for me, and also how I'm feeling about the frying pan and fire of current political events.

    In the final (for now) Getting Better Acquainted Extra I continue the tradition of beginning the new year with a round up of how the last year panned out for me, I consider the impact making this show has had on my life, what kinds of things you might find on your GBA feed in the future, and the distance between who I was in 2011 and who I am now in 2019.

  • GBA 350 The Last Christmas

    I have a complicated relationship with Christmas. It's been as site of both trauma and happiness for me. So in some ways you might say it's odd that since Getting Better Acquainted started in 2011 I've made a Christmas Special every year. Or perhaps it makes sense for me to keep picking at the Christmas scab because we often return to the things that have marked and shaped us. Some of the specials have been about comfort and joy and others have been about the bleak midwinter. Most have been about both and everything in between. GBA 350 is the 2018 Christmas Special but in some ways maybe it's the ultimate GBA Christmas Special, the Christmas Special I was always trying to make, the Christmas Special that I've always been making. It's a collage of the best and most personal bits from the last 7 years of GBA and Stand Up Tragedy Christmases. It has songs, stories, love, conflict, confusion, hope, despair and other Christmas things held within it. It features conversations, monologues, performances, time travel, music and moomins. It co-stars my partner Jen, my friend Nina and my dad. The Christmas songs were mostly performed with Asia, George and Sam. The episode is a soundscape, a collage, a journey, a stream of audio consciousness, rather than a documentary or a standard GBA conversation. After this episode we'll have a GBA Extra in the new year and then the show will be going on a hiatus for a while. But there's over 350 episodes in the archives so plenty to catch up on for people just discovering the show. Content Note: Physical and Emotional Violence, Trauma To hear the full conversations and context for the clips in this show listen back to the Christmas Specials from past years, although the further back you go the more I disagree with my past self, both his opinions and word choices: https://soundcloud.com/gettingbetteracquainted/sets/christmas-specials The full Tragic Christmas can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/standuptragedy/sets/tragic-christmas The best bits are collected together in shorter form here: https://soundcloud.com/standuptragedy/selected-tragedy-vol-5-tragic-christmas I plug: Mansplaining Masculinity: The Book https://unbound.com/books/mansplaining-masculinity/ What About the Men?

    In GBA 347 we get better acquainted with Tanaka. We talk about making theatre that engages with and challenges harmful versions of masculinity, making work about experiences of rape and sexual assault, engaging with young people about how masculinity is created and framed by culture, the intersection of caring and gender, navigating and expressing emotions and so much more. The topics might make this sound like a heavy conversation but it's actually a fun, thoughtful and positive. Although there is a content note for sexual assult and trauma the conversation doesn't contain any descriptions of being assaulted. Tanaka plugs: Universities and companies booking the Consent Collective: https://www.consentcollective.com/ People who hear disclosures of sexual violence regularly in their daily lives getting in touch for some research he is working on.

    In GBA 346 we get better acquainted with Matt. I visit him at his new venture, Alt-Space, in Morcambe and we talk about how he washed up in this North West seaside town, how the lack of a comedy club in the town inspired him to create an arts venue, community centre and a fringe there, his own work which spans spoken word, theatre and comedy, and lots more.
