Culture Bunker: The Specials’ Lynval Golding, The Farewell on Netflix plus Public Service Broadcasting

Hear the music from every edition on our rolling playlist.
Our new weekend pop culture roundtable returns with special guest Lynval Golding of The Specials, and their latest album, Protest Songs. Journalist Ian Harrison joins us to chew on new films The Farewell and Sweetheart, and we all listen to Bright Magic, the latest offering from Public Service Broadcasting.

"The history of music can almost be seen as one long protest song." - Sian Pattenden.

"I was born in Jamaica, I am living in America, but England is my home." - Lynval Golding

"Gay men get films set in Lombardy. Gay women get the caravan park in Dorset." - Alex Andreou.

Because of licensing issues we’ll have to use fewer music clips than usual in the main release – but Patreon people, rest assured you’ll get “a few extras” in this version. And all the music is on The Culture Bunker’s rolling playlist:
Produced and presented by Siân Pattenden and Alex Andreou. Assistant producer Jelena Sofronijevic. Audio production by Alex Rees. Theme music: ‘Bunker Theme (Juntos Mix)’ by Kenny Dickenson. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
