Stewart Sowman and producers Olivia Holdsworth and Grace Watson bring you bFM's daily news & current affairs show as well as a regular chat with Labour Minister Andrew Little.
The Wire is 95bFM's long-running daily bastion of news, current affairs and views through the bFM lens.
Stewart Sowman-Lund is in his final year of a Law and Arts degree, and a radio reporter for Newstalk ZB. He’s been at 95bFM since 2017, and has spent much of his time covering entertainment news despite being told not to. When not giving his opinion on something, he’ll most likely be found drinking coffee.
When thinking of strip clubs, you may have a Hollywood portrayal in your head of beautiful, long haired feminine women and men binge drinking in dimly lit clubs. Bodyhaus is an organisation that is working to challenge that. Bodyhaus is a group of queer people that have launched a campaign to make a queer strip club event. The purpose of this event would be to make a space for queer strippers to perform safely in an industry that can often ‘other’ queer bodies and even in the best of circumstances miss the mark in making those who are gender diverse feel comfortable. One of the organisers and somatic sex educator, Sarita Das, joined producer Laura Kvigstad for a chat about strip clubs in Aotearoa, how queer bodies fit into that landscape and how Sarita would love to one day perform with leg and armpit hair. Laura started off by asking about what inspired Sarita and the other organisers to campaign for this event.
The Pledgeme campaign has since ended however if you are interested in contributing to this event or finding out more you can reach out onFacebook or Instagram.
