150: Why LIZZO is large and in charge, Chimerica on C4, Stealing Sheep

On this week’s pop culture death match we’re joined by JUDE ROGERS of The Guardian, New Statesman and The Word RIP and dance music man about town RALPH MOORE of Mixmag fame. On the agenda: Does LIZZO have the body-positive bangers to match her outsize personality? Can C4’s continent-spanning marquee drama CHIMERICA spin fake news, the purpose of journalism, geopolitics and Wham!’s visit to China into a coherent image of the way the world is right now? And can electro-pagan Scouse trio STEALING SHEEP negotiate the tricky step up to the big time?

Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Studio production by Elsie Bath. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
