2.1 - THAT PODCAST with DESIREE BURCH... in which we look at rituals, relationships, sex and bodies – PART ONE

THAT PODCAST... in which we look at rituals, relationships, sex, and bodies, and which is definitely NSFW so don’t listen with your kids – PART ONE


A global pandemic is far from an aphrodisiac. How does shifting the satisfaction of our sexual needs to a digital plane change this most intimate and physical of acts? From couples revealing the rituals they used to negotiate each other during lockdown, to accounts of how the world of sex work is changing in response, Desiree Burch hosts an episode which is definitely NSFW.


Part 1 features commissions from writer Ella Hickson and Alissa Anne Jeun Yi, as well as conversations with comedian Celya AB and relationship expert Carol Bruess.
